For July, IRS (HQ) is All Wet

Heavy rains in the Northeast have forced the Internal Revenue Service to close their headquarters in Washington, DC due to flooding damage to the grounds and the electrical system. Parts of the subbasement and basement were submerged in as much as 20 feet of water. In spite of crews working 24/7 after the building is pumped out; IRS Commissioner Mark Everson said that 2400 employees will either be assigned to other buildings or telecommute for at least 30 days. In addition, requests for letter rulings, determination letters and changes in accounting method should now be hand-delivered to 950 L'Enfant Plaza, 5th Floor, Washington, D.C., 20024.

The somewhat-jocular title aside, I saw a news clip on flooding in the Northeast and I'm sure that many people are suffering. If you are financially able, please consider a donation to the Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity or similar organizations in these areas.

Hi, Added a new value add to my blog this weekend - a news widget from www.widgetmate.com. I always wanted to show latest news for my keywords in my sidebar. It was very easy with this widget. Just a small copy paste and it was done. Great indeed.
