Remember This: “It Was Incorrect But Not Untruthful!”

When you do your tax returns next year, remember what the (acting)head of the IRS said in response to questions about misleading answers: “It was incorrect but not untruthful.”

Oh, really? So, the return showing that the government owes ME several thousand dollars for my 457 dependents was, while being incorrect, not untruthful. Oh, did I target certain government groups unfairly? Well. Sorry* about THAT.

Oh, mercy. NOW we have the IRS outing themselves ahead of the scandal last week with a scripted question on Friday that they obviously hoped would deflect curiosity. How about that.

*Yes, that sorry would have about the same level of “sorriness” as was issued by the IRS.
