BILL GATES IS SPECIAL

February 02, 2006

From the TaxProf Blog:

Bill Gates said yesterday at a Microsoft conference in Lisbon that IRS has to store his financial data on a special computer because his fortune is so vast:

"My tax return in the United States has to be kept on a special computer because their normal computers can't deal with the numbers. So I am constantly getting these notices telling me I haven't paid something when really it is just on the wrong computer. Then they will send me another notice telling me how bad they feel they that they sent me a notice that was a mistake."

Our sources have smuggled a photograph of the Gates computer out of the Ogden Service Center:
