You can't make this stuff up!

Apparently the tax code is so bad that even the "professionals" working in the IRS cannot make heads or tails of it. In this story from MSNBC, we find out the best way to get answers is a phone call. However, they were right only 86% of the time. That means 14 times out of a hundred, you had better watch it. The rest of the article reveals that often the answers were correct less than that.

Hello! Is there anybody at home in Washington? If these "professionals" cannot get it right, what chance do us mere mortals have? The system is set up to definitely make us criminals.

Remember: "We're from the government; we here to help."
