I don’t know if I have ever shared a favorite quote. But today I came across a little jewel that I just have to post. The author is a Forbes contributor, Peter J. Reilly. He says that his clients should not try to anthropomorphize the IRS (i.e., give them a human face):
IRS does not execute its mission in a holistic manner such that you are dealing with a thinking being. If the IRS is some sort of being, it is not that its left hand doesn’t know what its right hand is doing. Its left hand is only vaguely aware that its right hand exists.
