IRS Lost Computers & Bungled Windows Upgrade

I love what I do. Really. I love helping clients navigate the complicated, ever changing world of income taxes. Even the best jobs have a downside and the downside of being a CPA is dealing with the IRS. It just gets more and more difficult every year. Some days I feel like all I do is make calls and send letters to the IRS and 99% of the time, I’m explaining to IRS employees why they are wrong.


So when news like this comes out, I just cringe. We’re paying billions of dollars into a system that is broken beyond repair, folks. And nobody seems to know how to fix it.

Today you can find me here sharing a sad tale of a Windows update gone horribly, horribly wrong.
