IRS Campaign For More Operating Funds

Posted by taxguru on April 22, 2015

Just as King Barack Hussein O did with the budget created government shut-downs, IRS has been intentionally cutting back on the services that will piss off and inconvenience the public the most in order to gin up support for more money.

IRS is the Anus of the Nation?

Posted by taxguru on April 20, 2015

Amusing and fairly accurate video on the IRS problems by John Oliver, including a song at the end sung by by Michael Bolton, where they liken IRS to a certain part of the human body that is stinky, but necessary.

The least surprising story of the year…

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.

Drudge had links to some interesting tax related stories this morning:

No Joke: April 1st Brings Double Digit Sales Tax To Several East Bay Towns – It used to be a common belief that states with no income taxes made up the revenue by having much higher sales and property tax rates.  That is no longer the case. California has super high income tax rates, as well as high sales tax rates.  It was actually a big surprise to me when we moved down here to Florida, because I was expecting much higher sales and property taxes than we had in Arkansas.  It turned out that both are actually much lower down here.

IRS union calls for $1.9 billion more in funding – The PR campaign for more IRS money is in full swing.

IRS ignoring 60 percent of taxpayers’ calls as deadline looms – Self admitted by the less than truthful (he lied to Congress about Lois Lerner’s emails) IRS Commissioner as he pushes for more money for IRS employees.

IRS chief to GOP: You can’t abolish us – The number one goal of government employees is self perpetuation; so it’s natural to expect IRS employees to fight like crazy against any proposed changes in the system that could possibly reduce the scope of their power. The cruel irony is that they use our own tax dollars to fight any attempts to reduce their ability to confiscate more of our money.

Tax Freedom Day® 2015 is April 24th – The Tax Foundation’s annual calculation of when in the year we move from being slaves of the government to free persons who can keep the fruits of our labors.

Decreasing Tax Privacy…

Posted by taxguru on March 24, 2015

For decades, one of the methods IRS had to encourage everyone to disclose all of their financial data and pay taxes on all types of income was that such data would be held in the strictest of confidence and kept 100% completely private. This is even in the IRS’s so-called Taxpayer Bill of Rights.

The Right To Privacy

The Right to Confidentiality

With the recent disclosures that personal tax return info has been shared with various members of the bHo Regime for political retribution, it’s been obvious that what is shown on tax returns is no longer private or confidential and IRS has failed to honor its own promises to the tax paying public.  How much this decreases the willingness of taxpayers to fully disclose their financial details, we’ll have to see.

I don’t know how IRS intends to bounce back from their failure to honor their promises of privacy and confidentiality, but stories such as this one from Forbes are just digging them into a deeper hole.

Beware of Scammers

IRS warns of tax scams involving health care law

Fake IRS agents target more than 366,000 in huge tax scam

It’s hard enough dealing with real IRS agents, much less imposters.  The lesson from these scams is that it is crucial to always work with a professional tax advisor who knows the proper procedures for dealing with IRS issues and isn’t afraid to stand up to overly aggressive IRS employees, real or fake.  This is also vital when actual IRS agents are the ones hassling you.

IRS investigating itself?

Posted by taxguru on February 27, 2015

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.

Lois Lerner Received $129K in Bonuses – for doing such an excellent job harassing enemies of the bHo Regime.

 
Will Only Suckers Pay The ObamaCare Tax Penalty? – Some more agreement with my assessment of this penalty as being optional.
