Dr. Edward Yardeni has a new report out on Y2K compliance at the I.R.S. Here's a link to the report:

But the specific data in the report goes back to a Sept conference this year, and two other quotes in Nov 1997.

But they still (as of Sept, 1998) expected 90% completion by 1999. Who gets to be in the 10% of taxpayers who are in the programs that don't work?

As someone like you who shares a delima with the IRS, I hope we both fall into that 10%!!!

Do you think the IRS could actually survive a substaintial failure? I don't know. Maybe they're already toast. After all, they just recently entered that $9+ billion contract.

Which do you prefer? A flat tax or national sales tax?

Bet we see some flat tax legislation in 1999.

Probably be a flat tax or a national sales tax soon - rendering all questions about whether or not the current tax code enforcement computers are or are not Y2K compliant moot. BTW - if this happens - I might know where to get you a deal on some pretty big used mainframes.

Flat tax or national sales tax? How about neither?

Already many not paying "income" tax.
