A Healthy Tax

Published: June 3, 2009

The problem with obesity has become so overpowering in America that no single remedy guarantees a solution. But a proposal now being considered by some in Congress to tax drinks loaded with sugar would certainly help. The idea is that taxes worked to lower tobacco use — a habit far harder to break — so they should help young people limit their intake of soda or other forms of “liquid candy.”

For R& B Star, Day Job's the Real High Note

Today will unfold just like all the other days for Herb Feemster, the suave "Reunited" and "Shake Your Groove Thing" singer from Southeast Washington who rose to international fame in the 1960s and '70s with Peaches and Herb.

The 67-year-old soul man with the sweet falsetto will scrape himself out of bed and push off from his suburban Maryland home in the still of the night. He'll pull into a Penn Quarter parking lot between 4:30 and 5. He'll put on his patent leather shoes, gray slacks, white shirt, red tie and blue blazer. And by 6, he'll be on the clock at the U.S. Court of Appeals for Veterans Claims, where he works as a deputized court security officer for the U.S. Marshals Service.

IRS mulls oversight of tax-return preparers

WASHINGTON, June 4 (Reuters) - The U.S. tax regulator said
on Thursday that the agency is exploring the regulation of the
community of paid tax preparers -- a step that could include
licensing and registration.

The Internal Revenue Service will recommend ideas to
Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to "better leverage the tax
return preparer community to increase taxpayer compliance and
ensure high ethical standards of conduct for paid tax
preparers," IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman said.

Potential recommendations, to be made by the end of 2009,
also include beefing up enforcement against misconduct by return
preparers.

アメリカでは連邦税の申告は、特に資格が無くても誰でも有料で行えるという原則なのですが、これを見直そうということです。
規制緩和の反対ですね。

税理士というのは日本に特有な存在という話は、おそらく神話になるのでしょう。
