Good Morning Gentle Readers,
The letter from IRS is addressed to:
John Q Decd Taxpayer
For the record, Decd means Deceased. For those of you who cannot find Iraq on a map, with both hands, Deceased means Dead.
This is a demand letter requesting Mr Taxpayer to file a personal tax return for 2006. One minor glitch; John Q Taxpayer died on Christmas Eve of 2005. A fact that was pointed out on the 2005 tax return that John Q's widow filed.
In addition, IRS knows that John Q is fertilizing pine trees at Forest Lawn Memorial Park, otherwise the letter would not be addressed to John Q Deceased Taxpayer.
Your tax dollars at work, here and abroad.
Yes I know that dead people can actually file tax returns, they just can't sign them. It was a rhetorical device.
