    Somehow this crime report make me laugh a little "Tax Solvers" and glad he did not do our returns.
    I find it incredible that most of us don't understand the IRS forms and rules in this day and age so we need these folks to
    get through the maze. I think I read the USA tax code consists
    of 75 thousand pages of babble.
