It's the IRS gdmt.

Overwhelmed, disabilitated and sabotaged by the seizure of the bank account, it is warming the heart to learn that one is in fact surrounded by family and friends sharing and supporting.
It gives hope that this devastating situation will not last long and that in a short time the powers of good will conquer the powers of bad.

Last night, at 2 am, was the opportunity to call with the personal account manager of the ABN-AMRO bank in the Netherlands.
At 2 am, in the middle of the night, because of the time difference with Europe.
This account manager, Jan Geerling, is a friend and with him the love for photography is shared.
Besides, Jan Geerling is an Elvis Presley impersonator.

This is highly admired because Jan Geerling doesn’t look like Elvis at all.
It is easy to go on stage in front of lots of people when a person looks exactly like Elvis.
But to do so when there is hardly a resemblance, that is courage.
Most remarkable of Jan Geerling is that he is also an excellent banker.

It is most inconvenient to have to wake up in the middle of the night to make a phone call about business and trouble and complications.
And the news Jan Geerling of the ABN-AMRO Bank was reporting was stunning and surprising.
It is not the GUP Gallery at all seizing the bank account.
It is the Internal Revenue Service of the Netherlands.

That puts everything in a different perspective.
The whole presumption that it was the GUP Gallery was wrong.

It is a big question why the IRS of the Netherlands would seize this bank account.
There are no legal obligations to pay taxes in the Netherlands.
Fortunately, a good friend in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, is an accountant.
He used to do the bookkeeping when having the business in the Netherlands.
Last night, also with him was a phone conversation and he is going to contact the IRS to find out.

In one hour is the photo session with Terry Tamminen.
One of the leading authorities on environment, energy and sustainability.
