Maintaining privacy and confidentiality is harder than ever to do, especially with so many people and companies demanding that we provide them with our SSNs. It’s doubly worse when you are forced at the end of a gun to reveal all of your most personal and private information to a governmental agency that can’t control who has access to it.
IRS has just admitted to over 100,000 taxpayer accounts being illegally accessed by criminals. How many were really hacked, nobody will ever know. What we do know is that this kind of thing will just get much worse, since the same geniuses in charge of IRS cyber-security are responsible for the ever growing personal data associated with ObamaCare. There will no longer be any such thing as private medical records.

Stalling and refusing to cooperate with investigations is standard practice for the DemonRats.
Two years later, IRS probes drag on
GOP has waited two years for info on IRS correspondence with Dem senators
With the public’s short attention span for these kinds of scandals, as well as the GOP’s unwillingness to push back against any DemonRat criminal activities, the stonewalling strategy is bound to succeed once again.

In spite of the sworn testimony (perjury) by top IRS officials that Lois Lerner’s emails were destroyed forever, some of them are now popping up. Of course, the reason for the delay is obvious. The ones that actually mention how they were committing their crimes have been completely destroyed and the thousands of innocuous ones that don’t address their criminal actions are being dumped on the congressional investigators to slow them down.

Tax Day Reminder: IRS targeting scandal is alive and well – We shouldn’t forget the facts that nobody has been punished for their crimes, and it appears that the bHo Regime’s use of the IRS to attack and harass his critics is continuing.

IRS’s Lois Lerner won’t be charged with contempt
In fact, odds are that she will be awarded something akin to the Medal of Honor by King Barack Hussein for her tireless work to defeat and harass his critics.

Some people think that there might be some actual criminal action against Lois Lerner and her accomplices in the IRS because of the recent release of her supposedly lost emails. I can’t be as optimistic about this happening because, as these articles explain, it’s the IRS’s own Inspector General who is threatening legal action. The odds of one branch of the IRS prosecuting another branch are fairly slim.

I’ve always made it very clear that I think trying to prepare your own tax returns is crazy, even when software companies such as Intuit make the idiotic claim that their DIY programs can replace experienced tax preparers. I was always referring to legitimate tax returns. It now appears that crooks have been successful at using TurboTax to file phony tax returns. The bad guys have been so successful that Intuit has had to shut down their e-filing for all State income tax returns.

Update: Arkansas DFA has just released this press release regarding this issue. Basically, it acknowledges the issue, but claims that they are not aware of it happening yet in Arkansas. However, as a precaution, they will be closely examining the 7,500 TurboTax refund requests that have already been processed for 2014. Considering that the MO of the crooks has been to file fake returns early in the season and thus freeze out the actual taxpayers, I am betting that the DFA will be discovering several fraudulent refund claims in that batch.

As the old saying goes, “it’s not what you know, but who you know that makes all the difference.”
People Jailed for Owing Less Taxes Than Al Sharpton – Phony Reverend Al is allowed to openly commit tax fraud and skate on millions of dollars in taxes because he is the bHo regime’s go-to guy for fomenting racism around the country, and thus, too important for the regime to lose to where he belongs, in prison.
There are various ways by which to protest tax bills:
Texas man arrested after attempt to pay taxes with tightly folded dollar bills – So much for our Federal Reserve notes always being accepted as legal tender, as it claims on the front of each one. Maybe it’s like with a vending machine; the note is only usable when it’s flat and wrinkle free.

IRS snooping probe will carry into 2015 with unresolved questions – We can only hope that the GOP rulers in DC grow some stones and seriously investigate Lois Lerner and her merry band of IRS criminals. If not, the rest of the IRS will have a hard time maintaining any semblance of credibility or respect.
IRS mistakenly penalizes Christine O’Donnell a second time, placed levy on bank accounts – Of course, this was just one of those many freak coincidences that happen to pop up with critics of the bHo Regime.
