Dear Internal Revenue Service,
Also, thank you for advising me that if you do not receive my payment in full by January 4th, 2012 (which is less than a month from today and includes holidays in which the federal postal service is closed) I will owe you an additional $20 for my late payment. I am aware that resolving financial matters prior to established deadlines is of top priority for the US government, especially when it pertains to significant amounts of dollars. To me, $846.00 is certainly a significant amount of dollars and therefore I understand the urgency of this matter.
Enclosed you will find copies of my own federal documentation records, which support my claim that your information pertaining to my 2010 taxable income is incorrect and hence I owe you no further monies at this time.
Correct or incorrect information aside, don’t you think we could have just called it even after my fiscal contribution to the $300 billion in taxpayer bailouts back in 2008?
P.S. No, I don’t mind putting my own stamp on the envelope on which you mandated an immediate response.
