You're our only hope


If a deficiency is found in our returns, will we be able to say “I forgot,” avoid hefty penalties and still get the job of our dreams?

Let’s not be silly. There is no such thing as a “Steve Martin rule” in the tax code. Just ask Wesley Snipes. This is merely the latest example of the oldest rule in Washington: “Do as I say, not as I do.”

So is there anything at all that we could call the Geithner rule, something that takes the news and hardens it into precedent, allowing at least some of us a measure of forgiveness for our own innocent mistakes?

So if there’s a Geithner rule, it is extremely narrow. I believe that we should call it the olly olly oxen free, Obi-Wan Kenobi amnesty. If you are the nation’s only hope, you might qualify.

Here’s a simple test: Is your name Timothy F. Geithner? No?

See you at the audit.

Paying taxes is déclassé.
