You don't. But...we can start by not filing a return on Apr 15th. If MILLIONS refuse to file and send any additional money to the thieves then we have their attention!
It would scare the living sh!t out of them!
Well...I said elsewhere EVERYONE should file for a “delay” for your taxes....it doesn’t cost anything....except...my brain seems to be reminding me now, that you’re supposed to pay an “estimated” amount.....hhmmmmm....any tax accountants here?
That's right. There are only small late fees for filing a late return, despite widespread misconceptions.
Geitner would probably direct the IRS to file Substitute File Returns on behalf of the protesters.
Then the (relatively small) penalties and interest begin.
It's not hard to fill out the form for an automatic 1040 extension (you have until August 15 to file). The only catch is, you're still required to send any payment that you owe by 4/15, with the extension form.
It may still cause a big shockwave to have so many extensions. Imagine those IRS workers, being forced to process millions of extensions in AUGUST.
