JohnA re: "Hart says IRS wrong re: payments": Phil Hart has a very legitimate engineering business and is clearly entitled to his deductions, assuming he has written proof. If, as Larry asserts, they are are legitimate and provable, and all are being disallowed he should be able to prove that in court. Having prepared taxes for many years I’m guessing the end result will be that Phil will get his deductions, which should help to offset some of the interest and penalties that have accrued over the years. ... I say let’s give Phil his day in court before we judge him too harshly."
Question: Have we been quick to judge Rep. Phil Hart harshly (before his day in court)?
