IRS Grows a Heart

What a story for the holidays!:
    As the nation sinks deeper into recession, the IRS is offering to waive late penalties, negotiate new payment plans and postpone asset seizures for delinquent taxpayers who are financially strapped, but make a good-faith effort to settle their tax debts.

    IRS Commissioner Doug Shulman said Tuesday that tax agents are being given new authority to work with victims of the nation's economic woes who are struggling to pay their bills.

    "We need to recognize that it's an extraordinary, challenging time," Shulman said in an interview. "We need to understand the taxpayers' perspective. We need to walk a mile in their shoes."

How heart-warming is that?

You just gotta love that ol' Joe South song, "Walk A Mile in My Shoes."

Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! Before you acuse, criticize and abuse walk a mile in my shoes. Yeah!
