You got lucky. Either that, or the wrong number.

I appreciate the original sentiment, but I also understand where you're coming from.

I'm currently in the middle of a correspondence audit where it's clear the auditor has never looked at the original return. (Or, more correctly, a transcript of the return, as it was e-filed.) So now I'm having to engage in the remedial education of an IRS auditor on basic tax law. Rather annoying. Particularly since I'm going to have a dickens of a time charging my client for all the time I'm spending teaching taxes to an IRS employee.
