A necessary prerequisite for Tax Reform

Posted by taxguru on August 11, 2017

Ever since the amazing election of Donald Trump, there has been debate as to whether or not he and the GOP controlled Congress will be able to enact any substantial reform of our wild and wacky Tax Code in the near future.  We in the Tax Practitioner community would love to know the answer to this question so we will know what to advise our clients.  The uncertainty surrounding this issue is very frustrating for us all.

Basing predictions of what our rulers in DC will do on their blustery talk is insane and ludicrous. However, if we look at what actual advance preparations are being made by our rulers for such reforms, it doesn’t look promising. 

As these others have noted, it’s pretty much impossible to clean up the IRS Swamp when its crooks are allowed to continue running it  and nobody is punished for their flagrant crimes.  How can we have anything resembling a fair tax system when we can’t trust those in charge of it?

The IRS is STILL toying with conservative nonprofits. When will Trump jump in and drain this swamp?

IRS Condones Employees’ Criminal Activities

Posted by taxguru on August 1, 2017

It’s not bed enough that such IRS miscreants as Lois Lerner and John Koskinen have never faced any legal consequences for their blatant illegal activities while working at the IRS, there is this news item that IRS is rehiring employees who had been fired for criminal actions while working for IRS.

IRS Rehired Employees That Falsified Documents, Had Unauthorized Access to Taxpayer Information 

We all know that IRS has been suffering from low manpower due to attrition and budget restrictions, but are they this desperate for worker bees that they ignore and excuse prior criminal actions? What message does this send to other IRS employees, the tax practitioner community, as well as the American TaxPayers?  It is nothing less than  insane.

Update: Rush Limbaugh discussed this issue in his Morning Update on 8/7/17.

IRS Reputation Still Sullied

Posted by taxguru on April 6, 2017

Can the top brass at IRS pull the agency’s reputation for corruption out of the hole they dug themselves into?  Punishing the lawbreakers we already know about would surely be a good start.  The fact that Lois Lerner and John Koskinen have yet to suffer any repercussions from their flagrant violations of the law makes it difficult to trust the Service’s desire to rehabilitate the taxpayers’ trust in them.

Let’s not forget the IRS crimes under Obama

Posted by taxguru on February 21, 2017

Now that there is a new occupant in the White House, there is a tendency not to want to dwell on the misdeeds of the previous tenants, such as the many criminal acts of the Clinton Organized Crime Family.  To consider those unpunished acts as water under the bridge and not worth pursuing at this time sends a dangerous message to the public and undermines our faith in the fairness of the laws we are all supposed to obey and live under.

This also applies to the unpunished criminal acts by various IRS employees, such as Lois Lerner and  Commissioner John Koskinen, who used this all too powerful government agency to harass political opponents of the bHo Regime and then blatantly committed perjury when they testified about it before Congress. 

We the people, as lowly taxpayers and servants of our IRS masters, are required to reveal to them every tiny detail of our personal finances under the presumption of a level of fairness, privacy and confidentiality that we can’t reasonably expect any more, as long as we know that nobody at IRS has been punished for their crimes.  We do need to keep the pressure on our rulers in DC to continue to pursue real justice, including dismissal, prosecution and prison time for the lawbreakers inside the IRS so that we can trust that all too powerful agency. 

There are a lot of good, honest people working at IRS.  I would hope that they would do everything they can to help clean house of the miscreants who have given them such a bad reputation.  Firing the perjuring Commissioner would be a good place to start so that everyone could see that such crimes will no longer be tolerated. 

Here’s a good look at this issue from the American Spectator:

Catching the Scammers

Posted by taxguru on October 27, 2016

There has been a lot of press coverage about the scumbags who call or write to people, impersonating IRS agents and demanding payments of fictitious tax debts.  We have received plenty of those communications, as have some of our clients.   So far, nobody that we know has fallen victim to these sleazebags.  However, it appears that many people have forked over some serious amounts of money to those a-holes.

When I receive a scam email from an IRS imposter, I forward the entire email, including any attachments, to the IRS’s special email address, phishing@irs.gov.  Some times I receive an acknowledgement back from IRS, and some times, nothing back.  What we never receive back are details of how well they are doing at tracking down, stopping and prosecuting those criminals. 

Every so often, a story pops up in the press about the progress against the scammers, such as this in USA Today.

Feds charge 56 in fraud scheme that siphoned $300M from 15,000 victims

With the ease of setting up these kinds of scams, it would be foolish to let our guard down just because these particular gangs have been caught.  For every internet criminal who is nabbed, dozens more pop up to take his/her place.

It is interesting to scroll through the actual indictment of these crooks.  Most of the people named are in India, so who knows how many of them the USA can actually catch and prosecute.  There are a fair number of names with USA locations, including several from here in Florida. Hopefully, they are not donors to Hitlery, the Clinton Crime Family Foundation, or the DemonRat Party so they can be prosecuted and severely punished.

One way to deal with IRS imposters…

Posted by taxguru on September 29, 2016

Sherry found this hilarious video of a guy turning the tables on a telephone scammer who can barely speak English and wants the victim to pay delinquent Federal taxes to IRS by purchasing Target gift cards. There are too many obvious signs that this call is a scam to even count; but some people still fall for these.

   

 

There is one very interesting twist to this phone call that I have never seen described in any other accounts of similar scam IRS calls.  After the intended victim reveals that  he is screwing with the scammer, the scammer basically claims to be a Pakistani terrorist follower of Osama Bin Laden.  Has our FBI looked into the possibility that the IRS imposters are funding Islamic terrorist organizations?

The latest “Going-Nowhere” Headline

IRS Launches Investigation Of Clinton Foundation

Anyone expecting this to lead to any actual actions against the Clinton Organized Crime Family must have the shortest memory in the world.  Before the announced results of the FBI’s investigation of Hitlery’s treasonous actions with her email, the FBI chief had a public reputation of being an honest straight shooting law enforcement official.  That reputation was shot to smithereens when he proclaimed that laws do not apply to the Clintons. 

With the IRS, we have a commissioner and other top officials who have already  publicly perjured themselves in order to cover up crimes committed by the current bHo Regime.  To expect any of them to in the least bit sully the great philanthropic reputation of the Clinton Crime Foundation is ludicrous.     

Clinton-Crime-Laundromat-C

The Clinton Organized Crime Family has raked in billions of dollars in bribes from around the world that have been used to keep them living the lives of kings and queens.  If they succeed in retaking the White House, their takings will reach into the trillions, as they will have the ability to plunder the full US Treasury.

On the campaign trail, Billary will actually continue to brag about their charitable giving because of the millions they have deducted on their 1040s for payments to their illegal crime foundation.

A good summary of how their crime foundation works is the recently released documentary version of the extremely well documented and not disproven book, Clinton Cash.  The full documentary is available on YouTube.

 

Update: Hillary’s campaign denies FBI, IRS investigations into Clinton Foundation

Normally, given Hitlery’s track record of having 99.99% of everything she has said being an outright lie, this could very well be true.  Both IRS and FBI are tools of the bHo Regime and are being used very aggressively to maintain DemonRat control of the government. It’s futile to expect anyone at IRS or FBI to do anything to harm the Clintons’ chances of taking back the White House for their third and fourth terms.

IRS Still Persecuting Conservatives

Asking the Fox to guard the henhouse…

Posted by taxguru on July 28, 2016

Here’s a perfect example, in today’s news, of how insane it is to expect the IRS to seriously investigate the crimes of the Clinton Family Crime Foundation.

Documents indicate IRS officials knew of Tea Party targeting since 2011

Judicial Watch has been doing the job that the elected Republican leaders should have been doing.  While it is extremely unlikely that anyone at IRS will ever be punished for any of the crimes they committed in persecuting opponents of the DemonRat Party, the exposure of the extent of those crimes is helpful in understanding how the ruling class functions in Washington DC, the District of Corruption.

New Documents Suggest IRS’s Lerner Likely Broke the Law

It would be a lot more newsworthy if they could find anyone in the bHo Regime who isn’t a law breaking criminal.
