    I heard the bill would cover even those not actually convicted yet - on the radio, forgot who I was listening to, not Hannity though. If that is the case, how can you people replying "what, the right not to pay taxes" as IF you actually sounded intelligent, claim to be able to read? THAT - IF true - is a BIG ****ING PROBLEM no matter WHO you are.

    Again. Merely because Berkshire has taken positions on certain tax assets that may result in additional tax liabilities under audit does not equate to Berkshire actually owing.

    If you people want to pretend that having what amounts to uncertain tax positions as having tax liabilities, you're free to do so. You'd also be utterly wrong.

    Sure, until you hit the people that work overseas for a living. So how do they work to pay the taxes now?

    Not just Berkshire big guy, and that wasn't the point I was making.

    Those who work overseas pay down on the debt, and make a payment schedule. While it is fun to bash the IRS, they want money not Chapter 11s.

    Unless they go to St. Thomas to do yard work I am willing to bet they have some assets worth 15 to 20K. Agree to a 15% garnishment and they be hoppen the Big Bird in no time!

    This is where I stand. It sounds reasonable with the $50K floor, but... it sets precedent, and virtually nothing the government starts stays where it started. I'm not aware of some huge problem, so I'd rather they not. To me, this is just more busy-work on their part.

    They tend to make themselves exempt from the laws they put on the rest of us, don't they?

    Thanks for picking up on what so many others missed though.
