20 February 2006
The IRS has reportedly initiated a new policy of examining returns of more small business and self-employed and to ease up on examining the rich (more money was going to the rich's sharks than to the feds, so IRS expects little-lawyered nobodies to be easier and more profitable prey, a lesson learned from the rich). This notice appears to fit that MO and probably is not related to Cryptome. Surely, absolutely. Rat an enemy for the reward offered by IRS -- http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p733.pdf.
John Young has had no previous examination in 58 years of tax-paying, thanks to perfect obedience and luck. A rich-making tax refund would be appreciated.
