We’re always scared of the taxman knocking at our door and asking us to pay taxes we shouldn’t have to.
Andrew Jarvis is one of those people who believe in being prepared for such a visit.
He opened up his architecture firm opened up shop in New York in 2012 and had to divide his time between the city and his home in Philadelphia.
Jarvis wondered if the New York Department of Revenue would get him to pay steep additional taxes for his apartment in NYC, even though he lived in Pennsylvania.
His concern was actually driving him insane - he didn’t want to be slapped with additional taxes.
So instead of being sorry in the future; he worked out a plan to fight off IRS in case the need ever arises.

He is also saving “blizzards of receipts, Easy Pass records, train tickets”.
The selfies are an additional caution - one that cannot be overlooked easily. So he gets them at random, using his camera on an auto-timer and takes a time stamped picture of himself standing in front of his home, many a times with the day’s Philadelphia Inquirer in his hand.
Jarvis became an internet sensation when his daughter Anne realized what he was up to and made an Instagram account for her dad:
Well, we wish him luck and hope he needs to use them.
