I used to do taxes (and contracts.) Really messed with my head when I read books for pleasure...these are not written in the same language!
I took a college-level tax class, and the instructor was a Section Chief with the IRS. He was a 4-foot-nuthin' pasty guy with coke-bottle glasses. You could see him sitting on a wobbly stool in the dank basement of a nondescript government building reading under a bare incandescent bulb that was slowly swinging by a frayed cord, with the steady sound of water dripping from leaky pipes in the background. (Rat squeaks optional.)
You would assume he was reading the tax code as you followed along in your CCH textbook, but when you looked up, he was pacing back & forth at the front of the class, reciting it from memory...letter perfect! Impressive and disturbing, all at the same time.
