Dear Mr. Smit Ty:
It has come to our attention that you have received services, in the form of information, from the entity known as NEPA Coal Forum. These services have a dollar value, and therefore are subject to MassTax, the new all-encompassing revenue-enhancement program for the Commonwealth of Taxachusetts. Please file amended tax returns for the last six years, reflecting as income the fair market value of said services received. Remit tax due, with 10 percent penalty for each year, plus interest.
It is further noted that you have offered advice to others in return for services received, again through the notorious NEPA forum. This quid pro quo is a form of barter, which is deemed to violate MassTax regulations by shielding from taxation not only the value of services you received, but the value received from you by others. Please provide form 1099-GOTCHA to all recipients of your advice, placing a reasonable valuation on the information you provided, and remit to MassTax copies of said 1099s and the penalty fees for late filing.
