Here’s a glimpse into what my life is like.
Three lawyers [husband, friend and acquaintance] all listened to me tell this story and all three of them told me I had it wrong.
Yet I maintain that this is what happened to us, so I’m going to tell this story my way because this is my blog and I’m a pragmatist who says that:
if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it’s a duck.

Curious about what happened to us? Well, here’s how I see it:
- We received a letter from the IRS telling us they needed information re: one piece of one tax return.
- We [and by “we” I mean Z-D, obviously] found this piece of information and sent it to the IRS.
- We received another letter from the IRS saying that they had received the information and that they’d be in touch to tell us what was going to happen next.
Now people, I am not new to the IRS and their ways. This is how it all started years ago when we were audited by the IRS.
So I think that you’ll agree with me, A NON-LAWYER, when I say that: we’re being audited by the IRS. I say this because the definition for the word “audit” is: “an official inspection of accounts.” [Look it up, boys.]
And what exactly is the IRS asking of us? Why my goodness gracious, they want to inspect our account. Ergo, I say that if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then. it’s. a. duck.
* quack, quack *
We’re being audited.
