Billions of new 1099 forms?

You recall that “health-care” bill that had to pass so we could find out what’s in it?

Well, Cato discovers yet another “mandate” in there that will land hard on every, single business person in the entire country. Weird one, too. Not exactly a paperwork reduction act.

Yep, that was a “health-care” bill, alright. For the health of the IRS.

    I’ll make a wild bet: The rapaciously greedy pols intended this to catch people working off the books to avoid taxes, and stupidly failed to consider the rest of it.

    I think I like it. A couple more requirements like this, and the I/R/A/ IRS will collapse under a mass of paper that deforests the Amazon. The only way they might be able to do this is to require universal electronic filings. And they can’t make e-filing work now.

    Well, I was one of maybe two people who were saying all along that heath insurance reform had nothing to do with health care, and everything to do with raping the populace of their last vestiges of wealth, and here it is, a grubberment that is so rapacious that it demands a piece of even very small transactions.
    Folks, its real important here to realize that the elitist oligarchy of banksters and their corporate vampire cohorts are the ones that rule our useless, spineless talking windbag politicians.
    We are entering a new dark ages, where the corporatist banker elite can dream up any manner of abuse of the people of this once great land.
    Shame on every bought and paid for politician that voted for this trashing of our most cherished values. They all disgrace the spirit and reality of what it is to be an American.

    Hmm, pay with a check and have to fill out all sorts of documentation or pay with cash? Hello, black market.

    Blech. What a waste of beautiful trees, our resources and time we will never get back.

    Just happened to stumble in for a peek, (been a looong time) and get treated to a Claire Wolfe treasure.

    Good to see that everyone is still breathing air. ;-0

    Everything is the same down here in the swamp, but getting old is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer to the end, the faster it goes.

    So, I’ll leave by the side door, but not before I wish Ms. Jordan a hello on the way out.

    I’ll be back, I promise.

    I like Carl-Bear’s thinking. I suggest investing in Unilever. They are the makers of Vaseline.

    On a side note: Any handwritten correspondence with said friends of the treasury has to be handled by a human. Including 1040’s.

    ….more reasons to go underground.
    Stop feeding the beast. Refuse to participate in their system.
