I have a good friend named Frank. We talk on the phone at least once a week.
Yesterday he told me this story:
He received a letter from the IRS. Inside the envelope there was an overpayment check for $14.62.
“Not much to get excited about,” said Frank. “But there was something else in the envelope. It was a letter about taking my check and investing it in government securities!”
The humor in that statement takes a second to seep in.
Did you receive your rebate check yet? I think it is supposed to be $600, right? I heard we were supposed to receive it on May 23rd. I’m still waiting. It’s fun to think about how I can spend that princely sum but I strongly doubt I will put it into an investment.

Do you realize that some tax forms ask you to check a box if you are BLIND?
Under the Freedom of Information Act, a man with a small business sent a request to the IRS asking if they had a file on him. The IRS wrote back, “There is now.”
See you next time!
