Your IRS at work

I love this story. Brian and Jackie Lawson only wanted a copy of a 1040EZ form for the year 2003. It seems that made an error in their taxes, wanted to refile and correct it. So they ordered the 2003 form via the automated IRS telephone number.

A slight error occurred though. The Lawsons received 2005 1040EZ forms.

24,000 of them, delivered via UPS. Yes, somehow the IRS phone system went from 1 2003 form to 12 boxes of 2005 forms.

It gets worse: according to UPS, there are an additional 12 boxes waiting to be delivered.

48,000 forms in all. Priceless
