ILLINOIS POLICY INSTITUTE
— ILLINOIS RETIREE: AMENDMENT 1 COULD COST ME MY HOME – Ann Miller (COMMENT: My $11,835 real estate tax bill for 915 Cove Court in Wheaton is a) 20.4% of my $58,101 Civil Service Retirement System (CSRS) pension and b) 2.2% of the home’s $534,700 “Fair Cash Value.” In traditional marriages, the husband is expected to be the breadwinner. Further, my $5,045 real estate tax bill for my inherited 1286 Wood Street in Crete is a) 8.7% of my $58,101 CSRS pension and b) 3.5% of the home’s $142,200 “Fair Cash Value.” Further, my $2,866 real estate tax bill for my car condo in Naperville is a) 4.9% of my $58,101 CSRS pension and b) 2.3% of the condo’s $125,070 “Fair Cash Value.”)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Effingham, Illinois, is located just southeast of Springfield. The median household income is about $52,551 and 19% of residents such as Cohorst have reached retirement age. The average home value in Effingham is $136,000 and families pay $2,328 in property taxes or an effective tax rate of 1.7% which is higher than the national average of 1.1%, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. “It’s not tens of thousands like some other families pay. But when you’re on a fixed income – and the people in this area don’t earn like what they earn in Chicago or some of the bigger cities, at our wage level, it’s getting harder and harder to keep up as property taxes keep increasing and we’ve seen the effect that’s having,” Cohorst said. When property taxes cost roughly 4.4% of your income, Cohorst and other retirees have trouble finding spare cash to sustain never-ending tax hikes.)

— When layoffs are looming, get proactive to save your job – Virginia Backaitis (COMMENT: My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old. They hinted that they might let me work another 6 years until I would be eligible for regular retirement if I would happily agree to be demoted and to be transferred to another work group. Since 1989, I had been working in their group that audited federal financial industry regulators. Earlier that year, I had earned a master’s degree in financial markets and trading from IIT. The year before that, I had become a Certified Financial Services Auditor.)

— The IRS is hiring; snowflakes need not apply – Anony Mee (COMMENT: Only about 20% of those who take the CPA examination pass it on their first attempt. In 1979, when I had been an IRS Revenue Officer for almost 8 years and I was taking graduate accounting courses at DePaul, I passed the CPA examination on my first attempt my Democrat IRS superiors were furious that because many their Revenue Agents had failed to do that. I had earned an MBA from Loyola in 1976. In 1980, after I transferred to GAO, I completed the requirements for a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul. In 1981, I passed the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt and became a licensed CPA.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: IRS agents are almost all accountants, as are IRS criminal investigators (i.e., the enforcers). To be one requires a degree or its equivalent, including a minimum of 24 semester hours of accounting and at least another six hours in law, economics, statistical/quantitative methods, computerized accounting, or finance. Being a Certified Public Accountant meets this minimum standard. Failing to understand that two plus two always equals four and that on this rock is built the foundation of all taxation to support all governmental operations, would appear to disqualify one for such a position. Gender studies won’t cut it. So, the wokies are creating a public-schooled generation that will be unable either to gather or manage the funds to pay for the tsunami of government goodies the wokies demand. Ha ha ha ha ha! Delicious irony! What sort of people is the IRS looking for? Only those who can pass the orientation and training programs required to be an agent for the IRS. The full curriculum is here. Investigative techniques and specialized training in tax law and taxation provide the general body of knowledge needed. “Critical thinking skills, with the underlying emphasis on core values, in a problem solving training environment” are practiced extensively. That’s why the job requires experience in the “exercise of tact, initiative, ingenuity, resourcefulness and judgment in collecting, assembling, and developing facts, evidence and other pertinent data through investigative techniques which included personal interview.” Core values! Exercise of tact! Assembling facts! Oh my! That certainly excludes the humble snowflake for whom every single thing is fluid and all about their precious selves. Left out, too, are all those who think screaming at local authorities, or just old ladies holding signs on the sidewalk, is acceptable public discourse.

According to Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs, it because Whites discriminate against minorities. Why are males, older people, heterosexuals, married people, conservatives, Republicans, Christians, Protestants, Italian Americans, German Americans, those whose ancestors have been in America for a long time, and citizens of America better off? According to Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, and RINOs, it because they discriminate against females, younger people, LGBTQers, unmarried people, moderates, liberals, Democrats, Libertarians, Greens, Independents, RINOs, non-Christians, non-Protestants, non-Italian Americans, non-German Americans, those whose ancestors have not been in America for a long time, and citizens of foreign countries.)

Because of the ever-increasing hatred that Democrats promote against those who share Trump’s demographics (conservative, Republican, White, male, non-veteran, gun-owner, non-poor, Protestant, German American, and his ancestors have been in America for a long time), I question if I could find the motivation today to do the things that I did. If I was in my teens today, I question if I could find the motivation to graduate from NIU debt-free with a bachelor’s degree in management and owning a year-old Dodge Charger like I did in 1970. If I was in my 20s today, I question if could find the motivation to earn an MBA from Loyola like I did in 1976 and pass the CPA examination on my first attempt like I did in 1979. If I was in my 30s today, I question if could find the motivation to earn a master’s degree in accounting from DePaul like I did in 1980 and pass the Certified Internal Auditor examination on my first attempt and become a licensed CPA like I did in 1981.

I worked for GAO on audits of IRS for 3 years at the GS-13 Step 1-3 Levels, currently $104,915-$111,909/year. I should write a book about those who have wasted my knowledge of IRS the most.
