pressed by the IRS demanded Didnt you get my death certificate I mailed it to The IRS expects 117 million couples and in dividuals to file sometime this year No one knows for sure how many have done

refunds in the past are get ting less and so they are filing said Harry Buckley director of tax operations for Block Inc The reason President Bush reduced withholding from most workers pay checks last year in an effort to stimulate spending and that shrunk refunds Millions of taxpayers who filed early fig ured it out Buckley said We are preparing a lot of W4 forms so workers can return to pre1992
