Urban legend still floating around...
I have addressed this hoax previously, but it is still being passed around the net, as in this email I recently received from a client in the PRC.
Subject: Senate Bill 2099
Senate bill 2099 will require us to put on our 1040 federal tax form all firearms that we have or own. Do you know anything about this?
That's a hoax that's been floating around the net for about a year now. The 2009 forms are in place and they don't have anything for reporting firearms.
Snopes.com has a good explanation of it.
In case you haven't seen a copy of the actual 2009 1040, here is a blank one you can look at. You'll see that there is absolutely nothing about firearms.
Thank you for the info.
