"Bonhoeffer? don't see that guy quoted in these pages very often. talk about a man of faith."

I reckon if a martyr can find humor in a Nazi concentration camp, we should be able to manage a few smiles now and then too.

Perhaps I misunderstood you then, smooth. Fair enough.

As a small aside.

Money magazine used to administer a hypothetical upper-middle class household's financial information every year to a series of accounting firms and ask them to prepare the returns.

The last year they did it, all 46 accounting firms got different answers, and the IRS agreed with none of them.

That's a problem.

Dear Sir or Madame,

I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013. As in prior years, it is important or you to know that I have absolutely no idea whether our tax returns and our tax payments are accurate. I say that despite the fact that I am a college graduate and I try hard to make sure our tax returns are accurate.

The tax code is so complex and the forms are so complicated, that I know I cannot have any confidence that I know what is being requested and therefore I cannot and do not know, and I suspect a great many Americans cannot know, whether or not their tax returns are accurate. As in past years, I have spent more money than I wanted to spend to hire an accounting firm to prepare our tax returns and I believe they are well qualified.

This note is to alert you folks that I know that I do not know whether or not my tax returns are accurate, which is a sad commentary on governance in our nation's capital.

If you have questions, let me know and I will ask our accountants to be in touch with you to try to provide any additional information you may think you need.

I do hope that at some point in my lifetime, and I am now in my 80s, so there are not many years left, the U.S. government will simplify the U.S. tax code so that those citizens who sincerely want to pay what they should, are able to do it right, and know that they have done it right.

I should add that my wife of 59 years, also a college graduate, has signed our joint return, but she also knows that she does not have any idea whether or not our tax payments are accurate.

Sincerely,

Donald Rumsfeld

I would never accuse carrie of being blind to anything. I think very highly of her and she has always been one of my very favorite people in these forums, which is why I said it was not intended to be critical in any way.

Just fascinating. :)

Remember my quote from Donald Rumsfeld re: known knowns, known unknowns, and unknown unknowns? Well... he penned a letter to the IRS with his tax return yesterday, in the next post. It seems his taxes are a "known unknown".

Actually, smooth, it's a great quote and doesn't surprise me at all for it to come from Carrie. She may not get caught up in a lot of political crap, but she's not blind to what's going on by any means. Her quote actually inspired the one I posted.

Carrie it fascinates me that you would choose to post that quote, and that is not meant to be critical of you in any way.
