Redefining "Quarterly" - Again

Last September, I griped that the IRS had redefined "quarterly" to mean something other than every three months. (See Quarterly Is Every Three Months, Except at the IRS.) For at least a couple of years, my estimated tax payments have been due in January, April, July, and September (not October). Well, the world just got a little bit weirder. Now, for 2005, July has become June.

Has anyone heard an explanation for this? Or am I left simply to suppose that the IRS wants to have my money a month earlier now, simply because it can? Or maybe this is one more bizarre budget-related accounting trick?
