"Hospitality among collegues"? Is that what they are calling it these days??
All I can say is that nothing surprises me anymore.
Nothing at all.....

It's infuriating! If I don't pay my taxes, my assets would be frozen, property seized, etc.
These guys don't even get so much as a slap on the hand.
What ever happened to and Justice for ALL??
The average person can't get the right justice, and the politicians get the wrong justice.

My questions remain...If this is an issue and the Republicans want to make a case that this constitutes tax evasion...
Does a child living with his parents after the age of 16 who isn't paying his parents rent need to estimate what his rent would be and pay appropriate taxes?
If there is an an exception for family...what does it extend to ...Can I stay with a cousin or uncle for a month or two without being liable for taxes on non existant transactions...estimated rent?
I once lived with a woman where I paid the mortgage and she covered the utility bills....must I now report her to the IRS for tax evasion and vice versa?
If my wife and myself offer to take in her best friend and child who is a single mom who just lost her job...must I demand that we either charge them rent or let the IRS know what I estimate the rent to be and report them?
Otherwise...What the ef is the GOP spin machine talking about when it claims that this is tax evasion!!
But when it is done in a desperate fashion, and in this case, makes an argument whose premise is in direct conflict with what we know to be the claimants values...The GOP calling for insane things to be taxed....then all this does is erode and often invalidate the credibility of the GOP.
