Living here in the heart of official WalMart country for the past 19 years, we are big customers and supporters of theirs. However, I’m still not ready to trust them and their assembly line tax prep associates (H&R Block, Jackson Hewitt) with any complicated tax matters.
According to this WalMart press release, they will be providing free 1040EZ tax prep services this tax season. In actuality, these taxpayers are the same ones who could also qualify for free tax filing under the programs run by IRS and several State tax agencies.
As with any of the big assembly line firms, I don’t think any of us tax pros who work with regular 1040s have anything to worry about in terms of competition from WalMart. Any client who would try to get us to drop our fees to match WalMart’s should be told where to find the nearest WalMart store.
Jimmy Fallon had a comment about this the other night:
Wal-Mart is now offering free tax advice at more than 3,000 of its stores. Finally answering the question, “Where can I get tax advice, kitty litter, and a shotgun all in one convenient location?”

We’ve all had a laugh at the exploits of the Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, Charlie Rangel, as the list of his crimes grows and grows. Here is a clip of him singing before Congress, explaining that it isn’t fair to expect an 80 year old man to obey the laws, courtesy of Auto-Tune the News.

One of the accepted benefits of being in charge of the Ways & Means Committee is not having to worry about complying with any of the tax and financial disclosure laws that other less worthy people have to bother themselves with.
However, as we all know, this special perk of the job is null and void if it is ever held by a member of the GOP.

Charlie in rental di$order – At least Charlie Rangel’s consistent in his income reporting. Not only hasn’t he declared his rental income from his villa in the Dominican Republic, rental income from a six unit apartment complex in Harlem isn’t worth reporting either.
As usual, none of this is considered to be serious enough to reduce his power in Congress as the head of the Ways & Means Committee, which writes all of the income tax laws that we mere peons are required to comply with. Our DemonRat rulers have more important things to investigate, such as how to punish a Republican who couldn’t resist the temptation to yell out “You Lie” while 0Bambi was lying through his teeth. It’s good to know our rulers have their priorities in the right place.

STAFF AS ‘FORGETFUL’ AS THE BOSS – Not quite a huge surprise. Rangel’s staff is made up of a lot of the same kind of crooks as he is.
