This American Life

This past weekend, This American Life aired a story from their archives: a couple who've been working freelance (and avoiding their taxes) hire an accountant to set things straight. What starts out as a misadventure turns into a cautionary tale. You can listen to "Taxation Without Inebriation" online; it's Act Two of the episode, "Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time."
