Acting IRS Commissioner Admits That Planting a Question About Reviewing 501(c)(4) Orgs at a Sleepy Tax Conference Wasn’t Such a Great Idea After All
Under less-than friendly questioning from members of the Senate Finance Committee Steven Miller was all, "Yeah, that […]
It’s come to this.
Our immediate concern was that the imbiber would be suffering from a disturbing reaction but he informed us that he has “just about” quit shaking. Good to know, good to know. If you have your own deadline cocktail that may or may not have caused an unexpected visit to the emergency room, we’d invite you to share it with the group at this time. Happy September 15th!
Or the new PwC logo on the back of your neck? How about Deloitte green dots incorporated into some barbed wire? Sure most people are looking for new jobs but for those of you looking to show some loyalty to your firm, you should know that some company ink may go a long way:
Employees of Anytime Fitness, a workout chain based in Hastings, Minn., can get the company’s purple running man logo permanently inked on their bodies by a tattoo artist who shows up at monthly training sessions. More than 350 employees have gotten permanent tattoos including CEO Chuck Runyon.
Runyon says the tattoo represents a significant commitment to the brand. Employees receive standard benefits like retirement plans and health insurance, but they also have flexible hours and an office culture that includes contests and giveaways among staff, a combination of perks that Runyon believes encourages employee loyalty.
“We spend a third of our lives at work,” he says. “If you don’t love what you do, that’s a miserable existence.”
Plenty of horrendous ideas get introduced inside the hallowed walls of Congress but the latest submission from Bill Nelson (D-FL) and Scott Brown (R-MA) ranks right up there:
Sens. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.), chairman of the Senate Finance subcommittee on Fiscal Responsibility and Economic Growth, and Scott Brown (R-Mass.) introduced the measure Wednesday that would require the IRS to provide each taxpayer with an itemized list, similar to a grocery store receipt, that shows where their payroll and income taxes are spent. “Taxpayers have a right to know where their money goes, how much Uncle Sam is borrowing on their behalf, and what they get in return for it,” Nelson said.
Yeah, no problem. New responsibilities under healthcare reform, chasing offshore accounts, not to mention your everyday tax compliance and enforcement. This will be a piece of cake since the the Service’s budget is getting slashed.
