Rumsfeld to IRS: I Am a College Graduate and Have No Idea If My Returns Are Accurate

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld penned a letter to the IRS this year that he included with his return.
He tweeted it out yesterday.

Rumsfeld calls this “a ‘sad commentary on governance in our nation’s capital.’
The Daily Mail reported:

Former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld says he has ‘no idea’ whether his tax returns and payments are accurate.

Rumsfeld made the claims in a letter that was sent to the IRS and shared on Twitter on Tuesday – and says he sends the same letter to the agency every year.

He also says he doesn’t even know if earlier tax documents are accurate for him and his wife.

‘I have sent in our federal income tax and our gift tax returns for 2013,‘ it reads. ‘As in prior years, it is important for you to know that I have absolutely no idea whether our tax returns and our tax payments are accurate. I say that despite the fact that I a college graduate and I try hard to make sure our tax returns are accurate.’

Here is a copy of his attached letter:
