Tax lady?

Was that the lady doing you income taxes?

Or the bee-itch from the IRS or state dept of taxes looking to nail your wallet to the wall?

If the gov. is thinking you have grossly under reported income for years they are not going to accept an ad because that ad does not prove you bought that mower. There out for blood, the green kind.
