Tingle Table
 n.— «When IRS management analyst James Tingle invented the “Tingle Table,” an 18 basket sorting system, it was still merely one step in the eight step process required to process a tax return.…Once the return arrives in the mail, it is removed from its envelope and sorted by an IRS clerk into one of 18 bins at the Tingle Table.…A single Tingle Table clerk can sort 7,000 tax returns a day.» —“‘Don’t Mail Us Your Tax Return,’ IRS Says” in San Diego, California PR Newswire Jan. 11, 1990.
