I had put it on some time ago. I kept it on everywhere I had a presence. I was submissive and had a desire to be obedient. The ramifications of not doing as the master said weren’t nearly as pleasurable as complying with my master’s commands.
Having become a creature of habit, and not wanting to displease my master, I had put it on everywhere. Having quite the presence online, I had it on in lots of places. You could see on me in my blog posts, my web page, my social media posts. Everywhere I was, I had it on.
Now, after months of making sure I’d covered my a**, I’m told to TAKE IT OFF!
Yep. In a webinar presented by the Office of Professional Responsibility, Karen Hawkins told me to take it off. I no longer have to include the Circular 230 disclaimer at the bottom of my emails, in my tax advice blog posts, or any other place where I contribute information related to the U.S. tax laws. In fact, if I keep it on, I can be reprimanded which I’m sure won’t be a pleasure.
Because I’m still seeing so many areas where the disclaimer is being worn, I want to make you aware of the rule change. As a reminder, it is your responsibility to keep up with the rules contained in Circular 230. If you haven’t complied with the rule, I encourage you to TAKE IT OFF!
