Today’s taxation torah from Phil Hodgen goes over the top for scrupulous nitpicking. I could care less about green card from a personal standpoint. But it is so much fun to watch a monster truck roil around in the bureaucratic muck.
These concluding words deserve quotation. Not from a crass compliancer. (Hodgen shared these thousands of words for free.) From a “cleaner” — think Harvey Keitel as Winston Wolfe in Pulp Fiction — who don’t want no blowback.
I like to do stuff today that prevents future messes tomorrow.
I am an enthusiast for excessive overkill when it comes to solving problems. (See my point about preventing future messes).
To my mind, this has the highest possibility of solving the problem permanently, at the cost of an extra few hours of work right now.
Reasonable minds may differ. Your good judgment, fortunately, is not encumbered by my opinions.
