Fissile: Article headline:"Employees given heavy workload, little direction"I know someone who worked on the most recent Census. Wanna know what it was like? See directly above.My friend ran into more than a little Tea-Party herp 'n derp while trying to hunt down non-respondents. People who "knew" the Census was a ruse used by Obama to set up UN detention camps. My friend told me he stood there thinking to himself, "UN detention camps? The people running this show probably couldn't set up a preschool summer camp."
Weidermeijer: I'm sorry, I know I am in the minority, but if your group tries to get exempt status and your group is all about no taxes... AND you are the tax people... YEAH... you should expect to be scrutinized.If you are attending the NAMBLA conference, expect to be scrutinized for being a pedophile.This isn't a stretch.That being said, there should be VERY, VERY few tax exempt groups.Tax churches, legalize and tax weed and prostitution and we will make huge advancements in the infrastructure of this county.
neongoats: Yeah, how dare those IRS guys notice all these anti-tax political organizations trying to cheat their taxes.
SquiggsIN: tfresh: I quit expecting that a LONG time ago. I've worked for the government writing software and doing contract work for years. I'm going to write all about it one day in my book, 'People Suck'.When i was contracting with the state I recall numerous occasions when doing things the right way meant doing twice as much work just to ensure the bureaucrats could justify their taxpayer-funded salaries. Nothing was efficient and they tried to keep it that way to ensure job security. It's a giant joke. It's one thing to be thorough but this wasn't about that, it was completely about obfuscating how worthless most of the state employees were.
Ohiofarker: Fta -But the Exempt Organizations Division - concentrated in Cincinnati with fewer than 200 workers, according to IRS officials - is staffed mostly with accountants, clerks, and civil servants. They review about 70,000 applications for exemptions each year.Rounding a little - that's about 2/day per person.I honestly don't know what an application looks like, but I'm guessing that 2 reviews a day is not overly burdensome.
Ohiofarker: is staffed mostly with accountants, clerks, and civil servants.
Clemkadidlefark: You think Cincinnati is bad?You work for the Internal Revenue Service! You deserve every bad thing that can happen in this life.
Yogimus: Ohiofarker: is staffed mostly with accountants, clerks, and civil servants.What the fark else would an IRS office be staffed with?
