DETROIT (AP) -- James Howarth has a question about small change for the IRS.
The Detroit defense attorney received a letter in November saying he owed the government five cents. The Detroit Free Press reports that Howarth was ordered to pay "to avoid additional penalty and/or interest."
Howarth says a second letter told him he's due four cents, but he would have to request the refund since it's under $1.
Howarth says he's not sure if the nickel debt or the 4-cent refund are connected. He's also not sure if he now owes the government a penny or if he's benefiting from a 9-cent swing.
An IRS spokesman says the agency doesn't comment on individual accounts. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
