I omitted a lot more than that. If you really want to see all the taxes Americans pay, you used to be able to download a PDF copy of the entire tax code. But in 2015, it's just way too large to be contained in one PDF document. At 74,608 pages long, the 2015 IRS tax codes and regulations (actually, it's not just one document, but a combination of several together adding up to 74,608 pages) would take you one entire year of reading over 200 pages each and every day in order to get through it all. Of course, in order to properly interpret and apply the code, you'd have to read 1,000+ additional government documents that are referenced in that code. So, you'd probably die before you could finish reading all that is required for a full understanding of the IRS tax code.

I guarantee you that you've violated some aspects of the IRS code, no matter what. And, you probably owe back taxes as a result. And penalties and fees. And you could probably go to jail for it, too. The code is so large and complicated that if they really wanted to, the IRS can go after anyone, convict them of several "crimes" and be totally "justified" (in the eyes of the law) in doing so under current tax code. It's enough to make you want to stay in bed with your CPAP on, 24/7.

RE: What the Manufacturers REALLY Think About the Patients
Anything I may have done was not with intent to evade or defraud; so the statute of limitations is short. (I think 3 years.)
The reason I would never make a good crook is I worry too much about consequences.
I used to sweat the random counter-intelligence polygraphs I was subject to -- even though I knew I was "clean."

Now, a colleague of mine bought into a tax shelter in the early 1980s. Liberian Timber.
I told him not to. Just short of 3 years, the IRS sent him a notice and demanded he sign a waiver of the statute of limitations.
He didn't sign it.

No wonder I can't sleep, I once claimed $100 that I shouldn't have.

One thing's for sure: It's impossible for them to read the entire IRS tax code, so they might as well come here and read something that's at least understandable and helpful.

I doubt they'll be here. . . There's not enough pictures.

Tongue Suck Technique for prevention of mouth breathing:
  • Place your tongue behind your front teeth on the roof of your mouth
  • let your tongue fill the space between the upper molars
  • gently suck to form a light vacuum
Practising during the day can help you to keep it at night
