H & R Blockheads
Tax season is coming up here in the US. Maybe you're thinking of hiring a professional to help you with your taxes. If so, there are probably some questions you'll want to ask: Did she pass the CPA exam? How does she keep up with the ever-changing forest of tax code? How do her clients typically fare in audits? Can she provide references? The question you probably won't think to ask is "Is she white?" But for some wingnuts in the white power movement, the answer to that question can make or break a tax preparer. Fortunately (?) there's a woman in Wisconsin who's ready to meet their bigoted tax preparation needs. They say it takes all kinds. It just wish it didn't take so many of some kinds.
