IRS Features Missing Children on Tax Forms
No white space allowed here; the IRS is delivering a quality public service by featuring the photos of missing or lost children on the blank pages of its forms.
Some could say this is an effort in conjunction with the Service's child tax credit, now worth $100 more than it was in 1998 at $500.
In other tax news, IRS officials say there is nothing truly new in 1999 forms, just changes in figures here and there. Taxpayers and tax preparers are urged by the IRS to review the numbers carefully for potential pitfalls in preparation.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
