I Argued With State Tax MercenarySubmitted by Robert Timsah on Fri, 08/08/2014 - 18:23
There's nothing more painful than calling the IRS or state tax goons. I try to be nice. I try to remember that they're fallible human-beings. But the moment they starting getting a certain tone (like, "SIR YOU OWE THIS MONEY") I can't stand it..!
Today I called to ask why my "tax bill" had gone up $200. Of course they applied more arbitrary "fines or fees" and blah blah. I then asked her what moral and legal right they thought they had to HARASS me for this money?
She really couldn't answer.
She tried to answer, but it was incoherent.
A lot of gibberish. She even admitted - "I can't really explain it".
So then I decided to go on a monologue about liberty. Why not? I asked her to consider the immorality of her job. Harassing people to pay something they NEVER AGREED TO PAY. I asked her to think about the insanity of putting this on someones record (background check) which could could keep me from getting a job! Obviously, it would seem if you want people to pay this ransom, you should not make it harder for them to find a job. I laughed at this one because it was so absurd.
She was silent.
I'm not sure if this is something they hear often or not? But the way I look at it is this - If they're going to FORCE me to pay them, THEN THEY'RE GOING TO HAVE TO HEAR ME BITCH AND MOAN EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. These fucks are going to get every sermon on liberty I can think of.
And I suggest all of you do the same.
