We all make mistakes, some learn from them…some get caught! Paying taxes is hard work, even for the IRS:
In an effort to show how complex the IRS code had become, Money magazine created a fictional American family and asked tax professionals to prepare an IRS tax return. Incredibly, every one of the tax professionals came up with a different tax total, and not one of the tax professionals calculated what Money believed to be the correct income tax. The Treasury Department’s own investigators declared that 47% of the advice that the IRS gives out to Americans calling its offices is erroneous.
