NYT SundayBiz illo-The Ghost Return

I have a piece in the New York Times Sunday Business section today.  When confronted by a letter from the Internal Revenue Service, some people look as though they’ve seen a ghost. And when they open certain letters, a few people do see a ghost — or, more accurately, the ghost of a tax return. When the I.R.S. detects a person had reportable income but did not file a return, it steps in and does the job. This comes in very high cost as the I.R.S. doesn't take in account of the deductibles and adds interest and a penalty for failing to file. 

Better get my taxes done ASAP....ughhhh!

Thanks again to AD Minh Uong for letting me have fun with a boing article!
