Hello. I noticed you made an edit that didn't quite fit the goals for wikiHow. I assume you were just experimenting or trying to learn how to edit, so I reverted the edit for you. If you would like to learn how to edit here, please take the wikiHow Tour, or if you only want to experiment with editing, use the Sandbox. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me or anyone on our help team. I hope you decide to keep editing on wikiHow.


Please do not remove tags, like here.
[END QUOTE]

Hi,

1. The tag states, "Please fact check, edit, cite references and remove this notice when the article has been improved."

2. The user MeBlu is a tax protester that doesn't know the first thing about citizenship or taxes.

3. The article is a duplicate of this article. Since that article is not marked for accuracy, why should this one?

4. The article follows the basic procedure for completing a 1040 form and is not inaccurate. The only inaccuracy in the article is the fact that the title is too broad a subject for a wiki-how page.

A brief history... The article was initially created by a user who promoted the anti-tax scam detailed in a book titled, "Cracking the Code." The theories in that book have been thoroughly debunked in court and anyone who follows those theories will be in serious trouble with the IRS.

Shortly after creation of the article, several people nominated the article for deletion and several followers of "Cracking the Code" chimed in. Basically, a discussion and editing war started. The final result was another admin removed the delete notice because the discussion page was practically 50-50. The article was severely inaccurate at that time with a combination of the correct view of taxation and some brief anti-tax leftovers that were irrelevant.

During the time of the discussion, another poster and I had a debate about citizenship. Frankly, his ideas about citizenship are completely contrary to law. KnowItSome archived the discussion page. I was happy to leave the old discussion in the archive, but MeBlu basically copied a bunch of the old archived material and posted it back into the discussion page. Needless to say, much of it was taken out of context and is erroneous.

JackHerrick corrected the article page by copying the "How to fill out IRS form 1040" article into this article. MeBlu added the accuracy tag, even though the article is an exact duplicate of another article that is not marked as inaccurate.

If you need further information, you can leave a message for me here or visit the Quatloos forum at http://www.quatloos.com/Q-Forum/index.php My username there is 'The Operative'. Alternatively, you can converse with Demosthenes, LPC, WSerra, or Famspear. I am an accountant, Demosthenes is a financial fraud advocate and expert, LPC is a tax lawyer, WSerra is a criminal lawyer, and Famspear is a lawyer and CPA.

You wrote
1. You should always mention removing a tag on a talk page. See if other users argee[sic], THEN remove the tag.
END

Since the article is a duplicate of the other article, it does not need to be marked inaccurate. Additionally, shouldn't a user discuss WHY an article is inaccurate when he or she places the accuracy tag? MeBlu did not do that either. If they should discuss why the article is inaccurate, then the accuracy tag SHOULD be removed for exactly the same reason you reversed my edit.

You wrote
2. How would you know? Do you know the user MeBlu personally?
END

I had lengthy discussions with him on the discussion page for the article. His ideas about citizenship are contrary to law. His ideas about taxes are contrary to law.

You wrote
3. I'm not reading two articles word for word. Maybe one article has something the other doesn't. Remember, I didn't add the tag in the first place.
END

I know you didn't add the tag. MeBlu did. His ideas about taxes and citizenship are directly contrary to law.

You wrote
4. Then you could always make the topic a little more narrow.
END

Yes, it could be. Taxation is a very broad topic and there are literally hundreds of forms utilized for all types of situations. In reality, since this article is a duplicate of the other after JackHerricks' edits, this article should be deleted.

I do not have the time to write extensive articles about every conceivable tax situation. However, I did take the time to attempt to ensure that people did not receive erroneous information. However, the Wiki-How process has allowed incorrect information to continue.

You wrote
I am not going to your off-site link, because we are talking about a wikiHow article, not a quatloos? article.
END

Quatloos is just a forum for lawyers and tax professionals. I only provided it to you so you could find additional information from tax and law experts. If you are not interested in additional information, that is fine.

hey hammy gretzky, how you been?

i was wondering if you could help me review a page for its basis of nfd - i dont know much about it all yet (nfd'ing that is), but the page is ridiculous, full of advertisements (obvious adverts at that) as well as a criminal mindset/mentality.

im trying to learn how to work towards keeping the dumb stuff off wikihow. you seem to be a pretty experienced user here, and id like to ask you for your help on this if you dont mind and stuff (anyone who likes tanookis as much as i do... well..!  ;), so sorry if its weird for people to talk about nfd-reviewing here, but its the only way i can see to ask.

the page in question is at: http://www.wikihow.com/Be-a-Gangster-Girl

if you check out the talk page of the article, you will see how i accurately describe the article as being unfit for WH, and necessary for deletion.

i hope you, and all of your viewers to this talk page will check this page out and cast a vote on how they feel it should stand.

thanks, and hope to hear from you soon!

I hope you're still on... I was at play practice. I'm Warbucks iin ANNIe. I know, it's a little wimpy. I like it. Anyway, my dad's going to a rangers game tonite: He used to cover a lot of sports (meaning go to the games on a media pass and write about the game for the paper. He's an editor now, but used to do this.) so he gets to get media passes to the games and sit in the press box. Lucky... If the game goes to a shootout I'm gonna be pissed- I've never seen a shootout.
