The Geithner Rule

By on 12.30.09 | 2:47PM

Apparently TurboTax tweaked the 2009 version of their software to prevent anyone from claiming, as Tim Geithner did during his nomination, that they failed to report self-employment income because of TurboTax.

Reminds me of the Brady Rule.

(Or the Hines Ward Rule.)
