Excellent policing folklore here…. ‘Eventually a letter was sent to the Polish embassy to ask for the Polish government’s assistance in bringing this rogue motorist to justice. Their reply was as swift as it was courteous. It said “Prawo Jazdy is Polish for driver’s license”.’
I noticed this when I was living there — it was nearly impossible to file a 1040 without help, and this is why:
Intuit spent more than $2 million lobbying last year, much of it spent on legislation that would permanently bar the government from offering taxpayers pre-filled returns. H&R Block spent $3 million, also directing some of their efforts toward the bill.On the upside, with H&R Block it’s reasonably easy. Just pretty unpleasant that it’s a requirement and effectively private-sector taxation as a result.
