I walked out of that meeting with a new white hot disgust for the IRS...and the feds in general.
I have no idea what your particular circumstances were, but they are pretty much just following the rules that Congress hands down.
Unless you're just filing an EZ form, the different treatments for various types of income and the huge number and/or complexity of available deductions make it either very easy to cheat or to simply make a mistake.
