2008 Tax Season will Suck

Pick battles big enough to matter, small enough to win.
Jonathan Kozol

So Congress is going to give back some of your money.

Timing is everything…unfortunately, the timing on this bombshell is not quick enough to do much good—in fact, there are some economists who believe it’s not even needed at this point—and will fall during a period in the cycle when the IRS can least afford another distraction:
Prime Tax Season.
Let’s see, we want to give back $600 to every taxpayer, or $1,200 to couples, and if they have kids, we chip in an extra $300 per rug rat. Even people who are working, but don’t pay taxes, will get money back.
I love this country.
If you’re working for the IRS, you’re going to hate it.
