Frank's Thoughts on Income Taxes
In my experience, people really don’t want to pay more than their fair share of income taxes. On the other side of the equation is the IRS, who really doesn’t mind if hundreds of millions of taxpayers pay just a bit more. The advantage the IRS has is that they write the rules and regulations, and who would have guessed that they’re not always clear as a bell. With a thorough understanding of the tax law, one can level the playing field, so to speak, and deal with the IRS on common ground, realizing their obligations and limitations to play by the rules as they were intended. When preparing your tax return, a few dollars here and a few dollars there can legitimately add up. That's why you want to optimize your tax deductions. After all, the IRS has been perfecting this Code of Conduct for a long, long time.
