Angry Guy Who Hates Tax Season Having an Even Worse Tax Season Than You

Ladies and gentlemen, we have an early contender for worst client of the 2014 filing season:

A 19-year-old Detroit man has been charged with a slew of felonies stemming from a shooting at a tax business on the city’s east side Friday.

Xzavier Tyrone Mazyck was arraigned on 30 counts today in 36th District Court, including nine counts of assault with intent to murder, nine counts of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, nine counts of felonious assault, carrying a concealed weapon, discharge of a firearm in an occupied building and felony firearm, according to a news release from the Wayne County Prosecutors Office.

He received a $250,000 cash/surety bond and a preliminary examination was scheduled for March 14, said Maria Miller, spokeswoman for the prosecutor’s office.

Xzavier allegedly beat up a tax preparer when he found out the woman he was with wouldn't be getting her refund in cash. After a security guard intervened, he is accused of whipping out his heat and shooting both the guard and two women. A fourth person was grazed by a bullet but not shot.

This, my friends, is why you don't work in a tax office that needs a security guard.
