Editor's Note
You may have noticed, AccountingWEB is sporting a completely new look. Not only have we updated the appearance of our site and added new graphics and design features, we have so much more to share with our readers in terms of ways in which you can be a more active participant in the AccountingWEB community. We're still feeling our way around the new site ourselves, but in the weeks to come, we'll share with you all of the ways in which you can enhance your AccountingWEB experience.

Meanwhile, this week we are watching health care issues on Capitol Hill to see what effect new laws might have on taxes, and we have a few tax miscreants to report on as well. As always, feel free to post your comments and suggestions at the bottom of any of our articles.

Best regards,
Gail Perry, CPA
Managing Editor

Screaming IRS agent goes to jail
Few things are certain in this life. As the saying goes, you know that one thing you can count on is that we all have to die eventually. And the second thing is, we all have to pay our taxes, if not now, then later and with penalties and interest. Heres a third rule to live by: it is never a good idea to scream death threats at federal agents. more >>
