Harv’s Metro Car Wash in Sacramento received a visit last week from two intimidating, dark-suited IRS agents demanding payment of delinquent back taxes. “They were deadly serious, very aggressive, very condescending,” Aaron Zeff, Harv’s owner, told the Sacramento Bee.
However, because of a combination of penalties and taxes on the 4 cents, the additional interest he owes on this amount has somehow ballooned to $202.31. More inexplicable because Zeff received a letter from the IRS last October stating that all his outstanding balances had been taken care of.
“It’s hilarious,” he says, “that two people hopped in a car and came down here for just 4 cents. I think (the IRS) may have a problem with priorities.”
The IRS had no comment citing “privacy and disclosure laws.”
Damn, you can’t make shit like this up!
