Definately Not!  Unfiled Return?  That's the worst thing you can do.  Always file the tax return! If you have unfiled returns, you have committed a criminal act.  There is nothing criminal about simply owing the government money.  Criminal investigations is the only worse division to work with at...

This past year, I served on the Grievance Committee for the Board of Realtors and loved it.  I am always amazed, but no longer surprised, at what goes on out there.  Having been a court reporter in New York City, I thought I had seen and heard it all.  Definitely not so!   The past year was a won...
