Always ethereal, always eclectic, I write as the mood strikes, when there intrigue reveals itself. Usually that means something controversial or adventure of some sort.

I've tried really hard to be unprovocative, but have as yet been unsuccessful.

Sometimes the best things in life

are written in dry bureaucratic prose.

Dear Mr. Palosaari:

I have enclosed a transcript of your 2005 tax period. On the second page I have highlighted the $1,454.00 tax decrease and the resulting refund of $103.46, which posted this week. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will mail you that refund, which includes $8.09 in interest, on Friday, May 23, 2008.

Refund checks are generally received by the middle of the week following the mailing date, but if you do not receive your refund by June 6, 2008, please let me know. I am closing your Taxpayer Advocate case at this time. It has been a pleasure assisting you. Again, I apologize for the problems resolving this issue created for you.

Sincerely,

Case Advocate
