Half a Dozen Letters from the I.R.S.

I got some mail from the IRS (though for some reason the letters are dated ).

The letters inform me that I have overdue taxes for six tax years, to which penalties & interest have been added (though they don’t itemize this in the letters; they just give me the totals):

six letters from the I.R.S.
Tax YearAmount Due

As their customary way of reminding me how wisely the government spends tax dollars, they informed me of these amounts in six different letters sent in six different envelopes and accompanied by six return envelopes.

I haven’t sent in my return yet, but I expect it’ll put them after me for another $6,000 or so. In I didn’t make enough to owe anything, so that year is missing.
