Can You Hear Me Now?

Don't know how we missed this story (from TaxProf Blog). Go read it all, you might be owed money:
  • The Treasury Department and IRS announced this morning (25 May 06) that after losing in five circuit courts of appeals, the Government is throwing in the towel and will no longer seek to enforce the 3% excise tax on long-distance telephone calls enacted during the Spanish-American War of 1898 as a "luxury" tax on wealthy Americans who owned telephones. The IRS will issue $15 billion in refunds to consumers for long-distance telephone service taxes paid over the past three years
You know what this means? We FINALLY kicked Spain's ass! USA! USA! USA!

And when will we get the tax back that we are charged for on our cell phones?

SCC,

I was wondering why you choose to delete some of the posts.

I know you are the host and that is your right and to some extent your responsibility, but recently I've noticed many more deletions than usual.

At times it shows that you deleted a post, other times entries are deleted without any notice.

With some of the mean spirited things said that aren't deleted and with some of the language, I know that that isn't your criteria.

So what gives?
