Long story short, no, you can't. You must provide info to "counter" the adjustments the IRS proposes, otherwise their adjustments stand.

On a SOMEWHAT related subject to your question above: one (a tax payer) does NOT have the benefit of "privileged communication" with a CPA or other tax preparer, only with an attorney. That's why, if you might have some complicated or contentious potential tax issues, it's a good idea to engage a CPA that is also an attorney.

<quoted text>Perhaps part of the problem is the self-defined glorious light that shines brightest on the self-deluded, as exemplified by the First, Nineth, and Tenth Order of Conservative Wisdom.

Then the Second Order of Conservative Wisdom calls for...

continuity
- The unbroken and consistent existence or operation of something over a period of time.
- A state of stability and the absence of disruption.

Which, naturally, is exemplified by the Fifth Order of Conservative Wisdom...

variety
- The quality or state of being different or diverse; the absence of uniformity, sameness, or monotony.
- A number or range of things of the same general class that are different or distinct in character or quality.

Now the Sixth Order of Conservative Wisdom claims the superiority of mediocrity, yet they revere the liberals who fashioned...

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

And of course the Seventh Order of Conservative Wisdom is not shared by Liberals, except for the Liberals who founded this country.

With the Eighth Order of Conservative Wisdom collectivism is seen as purely a Liberal trait, which is true as the Founding Fathers clearly stated in the Preamble to the US Constitution, the people consent to collectively act thru government to resolve issues, promote the general welfare, and protect liberties and property.

Perhaps it would be best if Bored did retire from posting here, and concentrate his efforts on like-minded forums that will relieve his excessive-compulsive disorder.

<quoted text>Please, oh, please tell me your comprehension isn't THAT nonexistent. We were posting about the working class man. Union workers as opposed to non unions workers. I explained in enough detail that a cat could understand it. I asked you what someone who can't get into(connections) a union was supposed to do to support a family. Are you going to answer that? You call all of them scabs. How NOBLE of you. I know two steamfitters. They BOTH had to have help getting into local #72. They had to have MAJOR connections in order to get accepted.
You know, people go into jobs knowing what to expect most of the time. If someone doesn't like the scenario, they don't have to take that job. It's so simple. What can't you figure that out?
Nice try.

No cigar.

Having just established the need for unions to allow employees even the remotest chance of negotiating fairly with employers,

I have no need to help you avoid answering the question, by raising silly hypothetical, illusory issues.

Please feel free to try to answer the question:

How can the individual employee bargain on a level playing field with a $500 Billion Dollar company with 83,000 employees ?

Now, now, settle down.

I know you feel put upon but it isn't the result of any hatred or ill will on my part, you just feel foolish trying to spout that ridiculous Right Wing Wacko claim that any one individual is a match for any one $500 Billion Dollar multinational corporation with 83,000 employees, a legion of attorneys, and almost every politician in America purchased and safely placed away in the company's back pocket.

I simply proved how silly it is to argue that unions aren't essential to developing and maintaining a Middle Class.

I demonstrated how ludicrous it is to claim that any individual worker it employee has the ability to bargain against or with employers; thereby establishing what we all know, the destruction if the Middle Class is directly and positively correlated to the destruction of unions.

I demonstrated that those with the money obviously use their money to manipulate the rules and the system to assure they accuse even more money.

Any person with a lick of common sense or experience understands these are undeniable truths - evidenced every day in the world around us.

Actually, I like people -rich and poor. The rich help make me relatively well off by paying me,(reasonably well), to help them stay out of trouble as they increase their wealth. They all understand the system is rigged in their favor because they paid to rig it. Do you think they are stupid enough to donate Billions to politicians without obtaining a reasonable ROI ?

By the way, statistically speaking, if we both are paying 20% capital gains now- we are in similar financial circumstances.

Now sit down and have a glass if water and contemplate adjusting your paradigm to reflect reality.

That cognitive dissonance has got you down.

Not reading this left wing trash that, I'm sure, has no basis. You must be sore the way your life turned out or something. You filibuster so that you don't have to answer anything. You could have answered the question I asked of you (TWICE, I think) very succinctly. I don't read your boring sputum, so I'm guessing you never answered.

We have to pretend in Right Wing World that we all have the same opportunities in life.

We have to pretend that upward socioeconomic mobility isn't more often than not a fantasy.

The Social Mobility Fairy Tale

As Bob Herbert wrote in the New York Times back in 2005 “The gap between the rich and everybody else in this country is fast becoming an unbridgeable chasm. Put the myth of the American Dream aside. The bottom line is that it’s becoming increasingly difficult for working Americans to move up in class.”

Social mobility in the United States is, in fact, not very high.

For male workers, income is highly correlated with paternal income, so income inequality simply replicates from one generation to the next.

If economic changes (particularly with regard to the wealth and income of American families) are very real, movement between classes appears no less common now than it’s ever been.

Research by economist Howard Steven Friedman of Columbia University demonstrated that less than 8 percent of Americans born to fathers in the lowest class ended up in the highest class. But almost half, 42 percent, of the American sons of fathers born in the lowest class ended up in the lowest class as adults.

All of this is not to say that something that feels like social mobility hasn’t occured.

The increasing consolidation of American wealth subsequent to that, particularly in the last 30 years, has made the lives of the working class much worse, and it’s certainly frustrating to be stuck in an economic place with no viable exit strategy, but that doesn’t mean social mobility is any different.

You are a white man aged 30 without a college degree.
Your grandfather returned from World War II, got a cheap mortgage courtesy of the GI bill, married his sweetheart and went to work in a factory job that paid him something like $50,000 in today’s money plus health benefits and pension.
Your father started at that same factory in 1972. He was laid off in 1981, and has never had anything like as good a job ever since. He’s working now at a big-box store, making $40,000 a year, and waiting for his Medicare to kick in.
Now look at you. Yes, unemployment is high right now. But if you keep pounding the pavements, you’ll eventually find a job that pays $28,000 a year.

Damn reality.

It interferes with those fantasies that make us feel so much better.

Let's see what happens.
It ought to be interesting.
WASHINGTON -- When $50 billion in disaster aid for victims of Superstorm Sandy came before Congress this year, three of Oklahoma’s five representatives and both of its senators were among the "no" votes.
At the time, some of the Oklahoma lawmakers demanded spending cuts as a condition of aid to the hurricane-ravaged Northeast.
Now that a devastating tornado has hit their state, it's not clear whether Oklahoma lawmakers who demanded budget cuts will continue to hold that line when it comes to their state's recovery efforts.
"When we increase spending in one area, we must cut spending in another area," Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.) said in January. "I hope my colleagues will consider this principle in future relief packages."
Oklahoma Reps. Markwayne Mullin and James Lankford, both Republicans, also voted against the $50-billion aid package.
Oklahoma’s Republican Sens. Tom Coburn, who is a physician, and James Inhofe also opposed the measure when it passed the Senate, 62 to 36.
"If an additional emergency aid package is necessary, Dr. Coburn will not change his long-standing position on offsets," said spokesman John Hart, whose boss was headed to Oklahoma to assess the damage.
"We don’t know if an emergency aid package will even be necessary," Hart said, noting that the Federal Emergency Management Agency has $11 billion in its disaster relief fund..
During the debate on Sandy aid, a number of Republican lawmakers challenged whether spending for such things as shoring up defenses against future storms was an emergency, saying that should be considered during the normal budget process.
Great Post! These republicans need to learn a lesson from the Bible " To he who shows no mercy, No mercy will be shown".Now Obama will not be a cold blooded snake like bush was or romney would be. He has already pledged millions to a state that really has been a under a tremendous curse over the past 25 years. Those congressional men you talked about could care less about New Jersey or New Orleans but any republican place in America they are ready and willing. I do believe these republicans are under a special curse from above! They can't wait to TRY and slither back into the White House but Americans have learned a hard lesson under bush.Unfortunely it rains on the JUST( non-Republicans) and the unjust(republicans). So 30% of those in this state could use your prayers and "Government Assistance". Thank our president for not being an arrogant, vindictive scumbag like bush romney and all their supportors. bottom line, keep them far away from our government.
