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.
