It's that time of year.
When some families swap kids around to maximize their "income credits" to boost their tax "refunds."
The streets are lined with costumed characters beckoning passers-by to pull into this tax-prep shop or that tax-prep shop to file a quick return.
At 8:00 am this morning my phone rang.
It was the boyfriend of an ex-tenant who skipped owing me a bunch of money.
He says she had him thrown in jail in Louisiana. And while he was jailed, she spent his tax refund.
So now he wants to score revenge by begging me to file a lien against her refund.
Tax time brings too much drama.
We could skip so much madness if we canned the IRS and went to the "Fair Tax."
