IRS Funnies – Hindsight is 2020?

Sometimes the IRS is just too cryptic even for me. Check out the letter, below, in which the IRS informs the recipient that they couldn’t find a tax return–then take a look at the filing date. I’d have trouble finding it too! (Click on the letter to view the full thing.)


And sometimes they just forget to address their letters altogether. The one below came with a Social but no name… I get hundreds of client letters a week. No name, no credit!


Got a cryptic letter of your own? I can help. Send me an email or drop me a line at (206) 323-1066.
