As tax filing season approaches, you see more and more TV ads focusing on opportunities for tax forgiveness or remediation. Apparently if you owe the IRS enough money, there are paths you can take to reduce your liability or get significant amounts forgiven. Why is that a problem? I guess I should be more compassionate and merciful . . . but instead I am struck with the incongruity of responsible Americans who pay every cent of their taxes being forced to subsidize the unpaid debts of others. I think it is admirable if people choose to bail out others who are in need; but what gives the federal government the right to play Robin Hood in these circumstances?
