I never had pushback like this before, and really believe that the folks doing the pushing really have, or have had, major issues with IRS. They don't like me grousing about a minor annoyance when they've been hit with big problems.

Your theory is faulty as I've never had major problems with IRS yet find both your manufactured IRS microdrama and constant attempts to portray others as riled up over your thread quite silly.

Ha. Indeed.

Due to my perfectionistic nature I've not only never had IRS issues, I have never paid a bill late in my entire 38 years of keeping house. Not once.

What was it? Undocumented "charity" deductions? Medical expenses for veterinarian charges? Fudging the comp on simplified method formula for taxable retirement income?


Fess up, bubba.

I am female and not Southern so calling me "bubba" is bizarre. You seem to have a penchant for word misuse.

None of the above. Nor anything else.

I always did simple returns and never itemized. Always just took standard deduction. Even when having a six figure household. Never been audited.

We had nothing to itemize; no medical bills, mortgages, nor loans, no student debt, no home business. Vehicles always bought outright. Only had one mortgage (first house in 1989) of the five houses and one condo I've owned.

OP, you might like this story about our IRS audit and cents. We got randomly chosen for the worst audit, the research audit, where they verify every expense for business and home. The agent comes to your small business with his laptop and your returns and goes through line by line and verifies each paper receipt and the account it was paid from and adds them up to make sure the totals are correct. We had six packed file boxes and downloaded computer files for him to go through.

We had one supplier with hundreds of invoices and I was very worried that I added it up incorrectly and told the agent. He said don't worry, if the math is off, we either owe you or you owe us. He was very happy and congratulated me for being only $1.22 off on that account of over $150,000.

So in an audit, they also look at the cents.

That's how Robert Vaughn found what Richard Pryor was doing with all those rounded up 1/2 pennies.
Who's stealing your half pennies?

In a word: anal.


And if you're such an anal nitpicking perfectionist, you would appreciate the OP.


They require rounding for online filing, yet they play with pennies when verifying the comp.


And on top of that, you are allowed to play with pennies when paper filing.


Oh, the inconsistencies abound with dear old IRS.

If you're such a perfectionist why doesn't it bother you to misuse words?

Oh the inconsistencies abound with this OP.
