"CHECK THIS BOX IF YOU ARE BLIND" ~ IRS

You will have to indulge me for the next two months, as I am studying the Regulation portion of the CPA exam. The topics that appear in the blog are often based on what I am currently reading or thinking about. So tax law, and and other business regulations will be creeping the way into what is written.

The image you see here is taken from page two of Form 1040 of the U.S. Individual Income Tax Return. This has probably been posted numerous times by anti-tax or anti-government folks, but this is the first time I think I have noticed it. (Click on the image for higher resolution.)

So the IRS expects blind people to check the box on their own income tax return? Tell me, how is a blind person going to do that? No offense to the sight impaired is intended. This is pretty humorous to me.

I think what their trying to say is, "have we robbed you blind just yet?"
