Making fun of the IRS Commissioner

Posted by taxguru on January 14, 2010

From Late Night with Jimmy Fallon via NewsMax:

During a recent interview on C-SPAN, IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman said he doesn’t do his own taxes because he finds “the tax code complex.” That’s like a surgeon saying, “You guys, blood grosses me out. So I don’t wanna . . . ”

 

From The Hill:

IRS commissioner doesn’t file his own taxes – This is actually a misleading headline because the writer doesn’t seem to understand the difference between preparing tax returns and filing them with IRS.  The Commissioner does file tax returns, but he uses a paid professional to prepare them.  As embarrassing as this may be for the person in charge of enforcing this country’s tax laws, it doesn’t seem to be as bad as a Treasury Secretary or the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee who both intentionally cheat on their tax returns by omitting thousands of dollars of income.
