No stop to IRS criminal actions…

Posted by taxguru on December 17, 2014

As many have noticed, the GOP landslide victories last month are having zero impact in regard to stopping the lawless bHo juggernaut, including the flagrant obstructions of justice (aka cover-ups).

 

IRS Watchdog Continues to Hide Records on White House Leaks. Of 2509 documents, government agrees to release 31.

2015 IRS Mileage Rates

Posted by taxguru on December 11, 2014

IRS has released the standard mileage rates for 2015.  This is handy to know ahead of next year because many employers use these rates for reimbursing employees for business miles driven on the job.

Beginning on Jan. 1, 2015, the standard mileage rates for the use of a car, van, pickup or panel truck will be:

  • 57.5 cents per mile for business miles driven, up from 56 cents in 2014
  • 23 cents per mile driven for medical or moving purposes, down half a cent from 2014  
  • 14 cents per mile driven in service of charitable organizations

Unraveling the Lois Lerner Crime Wave

Posted by taxguru on December 2, 2014

Although they do show her criminal actions, I’m sure the really incriminating emails were completely wiped out before these emails were “released” to the investigators.  Either way, nothing will happen to Lois or her accomplices, as bHo continues to cover for all of the crimes committed by his minions.

IRS Still Attacking bHo Enemies

Posted by taxguru on November 6, 2014

The recent election will most likely motivate bHo and his fellow DemonRats to use the IRS even more than ever to persecute anyone who dares to criticize anything they try to do.

 

Jeanne Shaheen Conspired With White House Insider On IRS Targeting Scandal – Many Dims in addition to bHo use the IRS as their private hit squad.

 

IRS says it hasn’t searched ‘other sources’ for missing Lerner emails – IRS employees still have no intention of helping investigators expose their crimes.

Presumed Guilty

Posted by taxguru on November 2, 2014

It has always been one of the more insidious traits of the tax system in this country that we are all assumed to be guilty of being tax cheats and we have to be able to prove otherwise. Asset Forfeiture laws, under the guise of the insane War On Drugs, are even more draconian in their nature.  Put those two together and we have a growing abuse of authority and disregard for all of our constitutional rights.

Be careful of fake IRS contacts…

Posted by taxguru on October 20, 2014

Fake IRS agents scare many consumers into paying up

Even if you’re not sure whether somebody is really with the IRS or not, the safest way to approach it is to have your professional tax advisor handle all interfaces with IRS on your behalf.  S/he should be able to quickly spot a scam, as well as protect you from the improper tactics used by some actual IRS employees.

IRS Attacks were coordinated by those in the White House

Posted by taxguru on October 14, 2014

It was obvious from the beginning that the IRS attacks on opponents were initiated by bHo and his accomplices, such as his chief advisor.

Senator Pat Roberts: Valerie Jarrett Was Involved In IRS Scandal

Of course, the trillion dollar question is, Who in the GOP has the stones to prosecute anyone in the bHo Regime for any of their blatant crimes?
