  • Who sends more than 1 check to the IRS? Not ENT Doc.

    Got a kick out of the following on the IRS Form 1040-V:
    "No checks of $100 million or more accepted.  The IRS can’t accept a single check (including a cashier’s check) for amounts of $100,000,000 ($100 million) or more. If you are sending $100 million or more by check, you will need to spread the payments over two or more checks, with each check made out for an amount less than $100 million."

    Sounds like a good problem to have - sort of.  I don't know what's more crazy though - having to fork over $100M+ to the IRS, or the fact that this only runs our federal spending for 14 minutes.

    What a strange number to choose. I can't think of any computer science reason for such a limit.

    Now that I think about it, it's probably best just to show up with cash instead.
