IRS Employees campaign for BHO

Posted by taxguru on April 15, 2014

In case anyone is foolish enough to believe that IRS employees are impartial and unbiased. They know that bigger government and more taxes mean more money for more IRS employees.

Chances of getting audited by IRS lowest in years –  The overall percentage of audits was dropped quite easily by only targeting the vocal critics of the DemonRats.  Publicizing this fact helps silence others who may dare refuse to drink the Left’s Kool-Aid.

Frivolous Tax Arguments

Posted by taxguru on April 11, 2014

It used to be official IRS policy to ignore people who made ridiculous claims about taxes being voluntary.  However, they finally realized that their silence on the subject just fed into the hands of the promoters of such tax scams who used that as a sign that what they were saying must have been true. 

As announced in this press release, IRS has just updated their guide to many of these tax scams, The Truth About Frivolous Tax Arguments, which can be seen on their website and downloaded as a 62 page pdf.

I had an interesting email conversation with a tax protestor a few months who was spouting some of these idiotic reasons why nobody has to file a tax return.  After I finish the rest of our April 15 extensions, I will post it here on my blog.

IRS Targeting 2013 Returns Before Filed

Posted by taxguru on March 11, 2014

Almost everyone is aware of the normal time-frame for an IRS audit.  A year or so after the tax return is filed, a letter is received from IRS announcing an examination and spelling out certain items that they want to see documentation for.  How about receiving a letter from IRS now, before your 2013 tax return is even submitted, announcing that it is going to be audited?  That was the story of a lady from Bristol, Indiana, who called in to the Rush Limbaugh Show yesterday.  She believes that this threatening letter was due to her donations to the Romney 2012 campaign and IRS is trying to scare people from donating to GOP candidates for 2014.  With what we know about the BHO Regime’s use of IRS to harass political opponents, who can deny this to be entirely plausible.

Because Rush was out and Mark Steyn was filling in, there was no text transcript of the show as is the case for all of the shows Rush hosts; so I excerpted the audio segments dealing with this topic and hopefully, it will show up in a player here in this post.

I have had cases where clients had come in who had not filed several years of tax returns and IRS or FTB was on their butts to bring everything up to date.  In those cases, either implicitly or explicitly, I knew that some or all of those returns could be audited.  However, I had never heard of an announced audit of a current year tax return that hadn’t even been filed yet.

I hope Patricia and her husband file for an extension for their 2013 returns and they raise holy hell to their US Senator and CongressCritter to investigate this clear abuse of power and that anyone else in a similar situation does the same.  While it’s hard to tell, Congress does still technically have funding power over the IRS.  As Mark Steyn says, we need to push back against blatant abuses such as this.  If we just meekly bend over and allow IRS to have its way with us, this can only get worse.  If enough people stand up and tell BHO and his IRS goons that they will continue to donate to the candidates of their choice, we may be able to slow them down with their Gestapo tactics.

The Lois Lerner Show

Posted by taxguru on March 5, 2014

Her 15 minutes of fame as the alleged IRS criminal mastermind continue. If nothing wrong was done by IRS, as BHO contends, why is she so scared to speak publicly about her deeds?

Some people still care about the IRS crimes

Posted by taxguru on March 3, 2014

While the MSM continue their job of covering up the misdeeds of their Fellow Travelers in the JackAss Party, I’m glad to see there are still some people trying to shed some light on the crimes undertaken by IRS personnel on behalf of the out of control BHO Regime.  It probably won’t change anything; but eventually more of the public should reach their tipping point when it comes to abuses of power by the current pResident in the White House.

Presumed Guilty

Posted by taxguru on March 2, 2014

Just a reminder that, just as with anything IRS handles, we peons start off as being guilty of violating their rules and we have to spend the time and money to prove our innocence.
