Re: Florida to Guatemala: 97-foot gaff-rigged ketch

Hello I don't know what happened before but the IRS is showing IRG as active now for 501(c) (3) EIN 45-3920056 go to not that it matters for this voyage.

I had a similar issue with a tax department. They sent out a nastygram about a month after the annual filing date, saying they had no returns from me for the past ten years and that I should show proof of filing them. I sent back a copy of the certified mail receipt from the return I had just filed two months before, and asked them "Does this mean you have suffered a server loss and lost everyone's records for the past decade? Or that you were hacked and just some of them were lost? Is this something the press would be interested in?" and oddly, somehow never heard anything further from them.

E-filings are great, but sometimes I prefer to burden them with paper, physical paper, and to get that USPS receipt instead of just a number in the aether.

I guess there are reasons why the JLA, League of Superheroes, and even Marvel don't have a "TAXMAN!" among the cast of characters.
