Observations of Small Town Living (OOSTL)

The TAX MAN comes-a-calling! Phone rings. Caller ID says “PRIVATE”. I answered. It was a guy named David from the Idaho Tax Commission. The lump in my throat raised my voice an octave. Last year we found an error on our prior taxes and owed some money to settle our debt to society. The reason for the call was in response to a note I’d scrawled on the form that asked them to confirm that they’d received my check. David was simply calling to let me know that they’d received the check. That’s it? Yes, that’s it. Just a courtesy call from a courteous tax commission.

The state government here has no resemblance to Illinois. I like smaller government the more I deal with it.
