It seems like centuries ago, but there was a time in my life when I was pretty conservative. Back when I was young and slightly more stupid and had yet to experience life outside of small-town, suburban Ohio I saw the world very differently than I do today.

I’m a changed man. Older. Wiser. But, I admit, some of it has carried over. Specifically my tendency to distrust any kind of new government regulation that appears to feed the insatiable desire of federal agencies to regulate the shit out of everything.

So when I heard that the IRS was going to implement new tax preparer certifications I obviously had questions.

Then I saw this ad for “Mo’ Money Tax Preparers” in Columbus…

Questions answered.

Dear IRS,

Please regulate the shit out of this industry so no one in this commercial has access to my personal information or is able to legally prepare my tax return.
