Forosophobia (fear of taxes and the IRS)

The article “Forosophobia: Fear of Taxes and the IRS” by Dale Hartley MBA, Ph.D. published by Psychology Today on February 12, 2021, invented a new term:

“Given that tax trepidation and IRS aversion are generally recognized phenomena, and further, that sufficient anecdotal evidence exists to establish that such fear produces phobic reactions in some people, I submit that there is sufficient cause to name the phobia. Accordingly, I offer forosophobia as the name for the fear of taxes and the IRS. ‘Foros’ is the Greek word for ‘tax,’ and ‘phobia’ of course comes from the Greek word for ‘fear.’”
