Never put anything past tax collectors.

Ever.

Helping out grandma by doing light housework is illegal child labor...this is what the nanny state has brought us to folks.

It is the Illinois state bureaucracy after all. I expect the ridiculous from my home state -- sadly, I'm not surprised by it anymore.

The non-existent bureaucratic mind at work. The law is a good one - but laws are not perfect and are open to interpretation. Alas, too many of the petty think their jobs are in danger if they stray from the exact wording - while too many others couldn't keep up with horrendous workloads even by letting things slide. A conundrum wrapped in an enigma.
