Once again, the IRS has presented us with its annual list of the most frequently used tax scams, also known as the Dirty Dozen . I for one am getting pretty bored with the tax scams on this list - they hardly change at all from year to year. It's time for some creative criminals out there to come up with something new.
I'd like to hear about the fun things that desperate taxpayers do when they simply don't have the funds to pay their taxes. How about taking a child care credit for your television set or treating your watchdog as a company employee? These boring stories about people who pose as IRS agents over the phone are putting me to sleep.
