This would be funny if it didn't underline how screwed up our system of laws are. The IRSS is confused by the tax laws.

"Enron and other big companies have escaped taxes in recent years through financial maneuvers so complex that the Internal Revenue Service has been unable to understand them, the Senate Finance Committee will be told this morning by Congressional tax experts who spent nearly a year going over Enron's tax returns."

Now while absorbing that mull over the following:

"It will be of little avail to the people, that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood . . . "
James Madison

Now visit & see how much sense their idea make.
