"Where No Tax Rate Has Gone Before..."

  • NOTE: I have had problems posting the link (grrr to blogger).  The story is from The Hill ( on Sunday morning, March 24.

  • The IRS recently acknowledged that two training videos which it prepared in 2010; parodies of "Star Trek" and "Gilligan's Island," were not a good use of $60,000 and that it would be more careful in use of tax dollars going forward.  Republican Charles Boustany (LA) blasted the videos as a waste of money.  One consolation for the IRS--Congress did see some training value in the "Gilligan" video; allowing the video to be shown to taxpayer assistance representatives.

    I am curious as to who approved the videos--though as government grants go; $60,000 is far from the biggest waste I have ever seen; especially since one of the videos actually worked.  Nevertheless, it was good to see that the IRS has "sobered up" in the meantime.

    Interesting post, appreciable reference, I really like what you've got here. One of my friends is a Denver CO tax accountant, so I get lots of advice from him, but this is an altogether different breath of fresh air.
