Bob Shallit: IRS visits Sacramento carwash in pursuit of 4 cents
Published Saturday, Mar. 13, 2010

It was every businessperson's nightmare.

Arriving at Harv's Metro Car Wash in midtown Wednesday afternoon were two dark-suited IRS agents demanding payment of delinquent taxes. "They were deadly serious, very aggressive, very condescending," says Harv's owner, Aaron Zeff.

The really odd part of this: The letter that was hand-delivered to Zeff's on-site manager showed the amount of money owed to the feds was ... 4 cents.

Inexplicably, penalties and taxes accruing on the debt – stemming from the 2006 tax year – were listed as $202.31, leaving Harv's with an obligation of $202.35.

Zeff, who also owns local parking lots and is the president of the Midtown Business Association, finds the situation a bit comical.

"It's hilarious," he says, "that two people hopped in a car and came down here for just 4 cents. I think (the IRS) may have a problem with priorities."

Now he's trying to figure out how penalties and interest could climb so high on such a small debt. He says he's never been told he owes any taxes or that he's ever incurred any late-payment penalties in the four years he's owned Harv's.

In fact, he provided us with an Oct. 22, 2009, letter from the IRS that states Harv's "has filed all required returns and addressed any balances due."

IRS spokesman Jesse Weller isn't commenting "due to privacy and disclosure laws."

Zeff says he's as offended as much as anything else by what he considers rude behavior by the IRS guys. While at Harv's, he sniffs, "they didn't even get a car wash."

Testing the market

One of the region's best-regarded business sites could soon have a new owner.

Lowe Enterprises in February solicited bids for its five-building Prospect Green complex and the nearby stand-alone One Capital Center building in Rancho Cordova.

Asking price: About $75 million for the 640,000 square feet of space – a significant discount on the $103 million Los Angeles-based Lowe and its partner, JP Morgan, paid in 2005.

The bids were due Friday. We'll hear shortly if any came close to what Lowe and its partner are seeking.

Why are they selling now in a depressed market?

Institutional money is redeploying assets to "first-tier markets," like San Francisco and L.A, where price appreciation is likely to be swiftest when the market improves, says Nico Coulouras, Lowe's head of NorCal operations.

Retail wrangler

Wanted: a "champion" for downtown retail development.

That's the short job description for a retail recruiter now being sought by the Downtown Sacramento Partnership.

"We've talked retail recruitment for a long time," says DSP exec Michael Ault. But now his group is putting some money behind the task by hiring an expert who can work full time with property owners, brokers and city economic development folks to lure trendy retailers to the 66-block downtown district.

Hiring such a person was one of the top recommendations of consulting firm Downtown Works, which last year helped develop a strategy to reinvigorate the downtown area.

Ault says the DSP hopes to have somebody onboard by the end of April.

...and some folks want these govt nit wits to have control over healthcare....

Even worse thing happened to me, my tax guy noticed i hadn't been deducting Car/bike registration. So he filed an amendment to get me a few bucks back. State folks screwed it up and decided i hadn't paid my taxes that year at all,,, so according to the computer i owed them thousands.. We sent them a copy of the taxes from their own miocrofiche showing i had paid.... I thought it was cleared up, but i didn't get my stupid check for the money they still owed me.... a few months later, they stole my following year's refund in payment of what i supposedly owe them!!!!!... Fecking nightmare.

Govt agencies here to help. (isn't that wonderful?) What could possibly go wrong?

Things that make you go: "Hmmmm"
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS4 Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend, are designated as the only shotguns authorized for IRS duty based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory, certified armorer and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts.

No offense Waldo. But, there is something wrong with that first part of the original post.

I read it about three times. It just don't make any sense at all. Its an incomplete story with missing elements, or its just a bunch of BS.
