SACRAMENTO, CA – One business owner was hunted down by the IRS for unpaid taxes. The amount is shocking!
The IRS usually strikes fear in the hearts of anyone that comes into contact with them. One business owner in Sacramento got an unexpected visit from two IRS agents last week. Aaron Zeff, owner of Harv’s Metro Car Wash has some unpaid taxes and the IRS was going to make him pay up.
“They were deadly serious, very aggressive, very condescending,” Zeff told the Sacramento Bee of the two IRS agents.
The letter delivered by the agents to Zeff’s on-site manager revealed an unusual balance owed. Zeff was in hot water with the IRS for having 4 cents in delinquent taxes. That’s correct, 4 cents. Zeff, who also owns local parking lots and is the president of the Midtown Business Association, was more amused than anything.
“It’s hilarious,” he says, “that two people hopped in a car and came down here for just 4 cents. I think the IRS may have a problem with priorities.”
Perhaps the biggest problem Zeff faced was wether he should pay by cash or check. This proves the point that a penny saved is a penny earned. The IRS can be thanked for reenforcing such a valuable lesson.

  1. Thanks for this post. I have tax problems also and I find it hard to deal with these problems. I need regular consultations from tax relief attorneys and that is really very annoying.

  2. Indeed this hilarious! Though its so lucky for him to only have an IRS of 4 cents. In the long run dealing with IRS is so heart pounding and i don't want to experience it. That's why i manage my taxes crucially.

  3. Dealing with IRS is definitely scary but i couldn't imagine how the owner react in this situation. I myself has encountered such problem but not as funny as this one. I have learned to monitor all my accounts to avoid hassles.

  4. This article is so funny but yet this happens on real life. And Indeed every centavo counts. We can't blame those IRS personnel's because they are just doing their job. There are some legalities that may attached on the said payment. I love this article it made me laugh.
