Two IRS spooks descended on Harv’s Metro Car Wash in midtown Sacramento to collect on a four-cent debt. “They were deadly serious, very aggressive, very condescending,” the owner of Harv’s said.
The debt was from 2006. Somehow with penalties and taxes it had risen to $202.35. For his part, the owner can’t figure out what’s going because he says he’s never owed any taxes or gotten any late-payment fees.
The IRS refused to comment, citing, “privacy and disclosure laws.”
Ah yes, the ol’ 4-cent car wash tax haven scam. Glad they’re finally shutting that one down.
