I’ve been audited five times in three years, and I just received notice that I that I am now being audited a SIXTH time. The only thing was any importance found in any of the first five audits was a bookkeeping mistake that I pointed out to the auditor. I paid, + interest + penalty. Everything else was in order.
My lawyer suggested that I keep a lower political profile, i.e. stop contributing to conservative candidates. I declined that suggestion, and now I am preparing for the sixth audit.
We are up against a powerful, corrupt, and shameless government with unlimited time, money, and resources.
I have my Congressman working on mine for me. He has actually been very helpful. And his people are talking to the IRS, not me.
I've never been audited by the IRS (Thank God) but my business and I have been subject to investigations by Customs regarding possible evasion of duties. Never once was anything found to be wrong, and yet having been on their radar once, seems we are under constant scrutiny.
My only explanation is that a typical Fed Gov't bureaucracy has the mentality of a primitive, multi-celled organism. Its sensory stimuli somehow become activated, and through simple habituation, it continues on a certain path. As a collective organization, it does not think or reason, it simply reacts to stimuli.
