Justice Rejected IRS Call for Enron Probe – It’s interesting to note that this happened in 1999, when the Clintons were co-presidents. So much for the theory that Ken Lay and Enron had the Bush administration on their payroll. While most of the big corporate accounting scandals were publicized during the past few years, they were actually taking place under the watchful eyes of the Clinton gang, who rode the stock market bubble up for all it was worth. Let’s not hold our breath waiting for anyone in the press to ask Queen Hillary about this during her current presidential campaign.

Retailers see results from child tax credit checks – People are spending their tax savings now; not next April.

IRS Loses One Battle Against Tax Protestor

Posted by taxguru on August 10, 2003


I have always been very open with my opinions on the ridiculous arguments many people use in their attempts to illegally evade their responsibilities for filing tax returns and paying taxes. One of the tricks commonly used by these people is to refuse to file tax returns until someone from the IRS will provide them with specific legal citations of where in the law it requires people to file tax returns and pay taxes. IRS policy in response to these requests is to ignore them and just send the standard demands for tax returns and payment of taxes based on the W-2 and 1099 info it has in its computers.

Many in the tax protestor movement are currently declaring victory with this approach based on this recent case in Memphis, where a FedEx pilot was acquitted of criminal tax evasion charges because IRS didn’t answer her questions. While she did dodge the bullet in regard to the most serious criminal charges that would have sent her to prison, she hasn’t escaped responsibility to pay the taxes on her income. She will still end up having her paychecks garnished and assets seized and will have to pay at least triple the amount that would have originally been required, after factoring in the compounded interest and penalties that she will still be forced to pay.
