My first Thankful Thursday is probably an odd one, but it's true. I am thankful for the IRS help line.
As I've mentioned, I help DangerBear with his start-up business. I am the office manager, which in my case includes human resources, accounting, and Tax Stuff.
I am not at all trained in the above areas, so there is a steep learning curve. Add to that the fact that I tend to have a mental block about financial sorts of things. I sent away for lots of free publications from the IRS all about taxes, but sometimes you just have to talk to someone.
The IRS help line is staffed by polite, patient people who kindly answer all of my tax questions without making me feel stupid. I was very surprised, until I realized that these are not the people who do audits. =)
