The IRS is probably the worst collection agency on the earth; the state tax agencies have to run a close second, however. Tax Agencies are sometimes corrupt, often arbitrary; they will lie, mislead and bluff. The administrative and judicial appeals processes express or imply a bias that the taxpayer is the “bad” party despite many facts to the contrary.
Such bias can trigger anger, frustration, and self-inflicted depression and hopelessness on a taxpayer against a tax agency that appears to be a law unto itself.
The good news is “Be Happy.” Happiness is a choice. You can choose to be happy.
In 100 A.D., Epictetus, a Greek Stoic philosophy once said, “What disturbs people’s minds is not events, but their judgments on events.” Abraham Lincoln said “A person will be just about as happy as they make their minds to be.”
What distinguishes man from plants and animals is the ability to think. We have control over our reaction to events; it is enormously important to realize the key to happiness is to understand happiness is a choice.
We will all die…this makes every moment of life precious. The more we understand about happiness, the more power we have to achieve it; the more often it will become a choice!
When you hire Tax Crisis Institute, we fight to death – we are our enemies worst nightmare. The pressure of a tax debt, wage levy or court action couldn’t be anything but a source of unhappiness. In hiring us you have made a plan of action to deal with the situation; dwelling further on the situation will not help and will just generate unhappiness. Let it go, put it in our hands and be happy!
