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?

I had posted this almost three years ago, but just now received a copyright complaint from Viacom via YouTube about its content, so I have uploaded it to WordPress instead.

“You didn’t build that”

Posted by taxguru on May 20, 2015

A recurring DemonRat mantra is that anyone who has done well in what they call “life’s lottery” owes every bit of that success to the government.  Dims, as with their Marxist comrades, actually believe that Big Government is more important to every aspect of everyone’s existence than anything or anyone else, including God.

Ray Stevens just posted this great example of the hypocrisy of this DemonRat philosophy.

While this video doesn’t focus on it, I found it slightly ironic that one of the examples of success, Ted Turner, became a huge supporter of Marxism after he became wealthy.

DemonRat Financial Hypocrisy

Posted by taxguru on April 29, 2015

Yesterday’s episode of NewsBusted had some good zingers on the Dims’ well deserved reputation for cheating on taxes and using corrupt means to raise campaign funds.




From Jimmy Fallon via NewsMax:

Hillary Clinton wrote an Op-Ed for a paper in Iowa about her plans to help the middle class. Middle-class Americans said, “Why didn’t you just say that in a speech?” and she said, “Because I charge $200,000 for a speech.”


There is a new reality show on CBS where a family must decide whether to keep $100,000 in a briefcase or give it away to another family. The show’s called, “We’ll Keep the Briefcase.” It’s the first 10-second-long show in history.


The NFL recently agreed to give up its tax-exempt status. It sounds like a big change, but on the bright side, the Philadelphia Eagles can still write off Tim Tebow’s salary as a charitable donation.


From Argus Hamilton:

Clinton Cash is a new book saying Hillary used her post as Secretary of State to greatly increase her family’s fortune via donations to the Clinton Foundation and high speaking fees for Bill. That’s not fair. She was only trying to close the income inequality gap between the Clintons and David Rockefeller.


Late baby deliveries have become quite normal here in the U.S. Today’s infants peek outside the womb and see the size of the national debt and they refuse to come out.


From Seth Meyers via NewsMax:

Hillary Clinton gave a speech at Columbia University this afternoon. She ended it the way Clintons always end their speeches, by saying, “That’ll be $200,000.”


Bruce Jenner will reportedly make a return to motivational speaking. And it’s going to be a little tougher, because now he’s only going to make 77 cents on the dollar.

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.
