Nobody likes to pay taxes. But don't expect sympathy when "don't like to" turns into "so I didn't"
"Tired of the IRS calling you, liens on your home and garnishments of your paycheck?"
Here's a plan: pay your freaking back taxes, you fricking leach. This poor high school teacher (who, before landing a job as a high school teacher, stacked yogurt and milk at a Wegman's at night while subbing for other teachers during the day-in short, has never had any money, ever)-has managed to do it all his life. Don't give me the Woe-is-me-look-my-head-is-in-my-hands-what-do-I-do look. Don't tell me you need "help" from TaxMasters* or Wall and Associates or Roni Deutsch* or any other As Seen On TV carnival barkers because you've got this big tax bill and you just don't wanna pay it 'cause gosh look how big it is. If you owe back taxes and penalties it's because you haven't been doing your legal duty, scumbag.
Don't look for someone to reduce your taxes for you. Why should your taxes be reduced? Why do we want to set this precedent- "avoid paying your taxes for a long time, let the bill balloon to a ridiculously large amount, don't worry, because then you can cut a deal and pay a lot less than you would have if you had been paying all along?" F---K THAT. Pay. Your Freaking. Taxes.
*good luck, because these scammers have been out of business for quite some time, and are a little too busy warding off lawsuits to take your call right now. Sorry.
