Ladies and Gentlemen, meet H&R Blockhead, the latest in a series of no count accountants to wreak havoc on my income tax returns. I went to visit the Blockhead after learning that he made a mistake while trying to correct his firm's previous mistake on my 2007 returns. "I can't help you right now," he said, "But let me make a copy of your forms and we'll set up a meeting to discuss them in a few days." He smiled, grabbed my file and disappeared into a nearby copy room, leaving me to stare at a poster promoting his Mission. In case you're wondering, it's all about Excellence, Integrity, Clients, Teamwork and Respect. Too bad Accuracy didn't make the list. Twenty minutes later, I began to worry. Afterall, how long does it take to copy a three-page letter? I went in search of the Blockhead, only to find him huddled over a photocopier, scratching his head and moving in slow motion. "I can't figure this silly thing out," he said, "It just keeps reducing everything." By this point, my patience was reduced. I grabbed my file and made a bee-line for 7th and Montana where -- not surprisingly -- I came face-to-face with the Accountant, known for spreading out his confidential paperwork all over Our Favorite Starbucks. It figures, doesn't it ...?
