IRS Performing a Ministerial

I know many of you who have had interactions with IRS in the past two years.
And feeling frustrated by the whole process.

IRS has a backlog of millions of unprocessed 2020 returns.
Their automated system sent out many erroneous notices.
Not a lot of fun — to put it mildly.

Still, some of you choose to see the funny side of things.
Like one of my friends who sent me this email:

> > > > > >

So I’m on the internet, looking up some tax information.
And I’m reading this:
“All or part of any interest you were charged can be forgiven if the interest is due to an unreasonable error or delay by an officer or employee of the IRS in performing a ministerial…”

IRS in performing a ministerial?!

Now I’m thinking:
“Did I accidentally go to a religious site!?
But it clearly says ‘IRS’

> > > > > >

Love my friends.
And their sense of humor.

On a more serious note, do remember:
You don’t need to pay the interest you were charged due to an IRS employee’s instructions/action.
Or as they said, that interest can be forgiven.

Yes, I know what you’re thinking — that’s another word closely related to ministerial 😊

Sharing this site with your friends is much appreciated.
Thanks for visiting.
