Default IRS Bitter

We made a brew for tax session "IRS Bitter" "a bitter beer for a bitter time." It was a rye beer, nice Golding hops. Really tasty. I have posted the label in my gallery as well as here for those who might like to check it out. The back-ground is a take off of the famous IRS form and we actually had to submit it to the feds for label approval.

That's awesome! Does that say form 1040 OG (ALE)? The print is a little small for me to tell.

the whole form is a rip-off, tongue in cheek jab at the IRS. It is an Individual Ale Return, for 1.040 OG, on and on. I wish I had a copy of the text or a better image. I have a couple labels, maybe I'll see if I can get a better scan.

I got a letter a couple of weeks ago threatening to non-renew my wife's teacher's license. They said I hadn't paid my 04 taxes. I had to print out the check, take off work and go see them. I will have to say, though, at least the lady I dealt with was very pleasant and apologetic.

Funny thing is, I had been trying to get ahold of them about a rebate they owed me. I'd call and the voice message would say it would be a 2-5 minutes wait, after 30 minutes I'd hang up. This happened several times. After I got the letter and called the number for people who owe them money, it answered on the 3rd ring. hmmm....

At least with the money you can take comfort in knowing that it's all being well spent. (please choose only one smiley).

I know it's been said before, but did ya ever notice that when you read "The IRS" they read it as "THEIRS"?

Yo! UK: I'd much rather be filling out a 1040 form than a UB40!!

Yeah, but with UB40 you get "Red, red wine"
