WASHINGTON (AP) - The IRS says it is severing ties with ACORN, the community activist group involved in a scandal after employees were caught on video giving advice to a couple posing as a prostitute and pimp.
The Internal Revenue Service said Wednesday it would no longer include ACORN in its volunteer tax assistance program. The program offered free tax advice to about 3 million low- and moderate-income tax filers this spring

Will the IRS investigate ACORN?
What the HELL was the irs EVER doing consorting with these vermin in the first place?
What access did these filth have to taxpayer records?
Stop it my butt. Heads should roll over this.
I will be willing to wager straight up that ACORN, its affiliates and successors will receive more in taxpayers' funds in 2011 than it received in 2008.
You’re welcome, America.

ACORN was helping fraud the IRS with their tax assistance while being paid by IRS?
This gets better and better. ACORN seems to have been everywhere.
ACORN was acting like H and R Block.
If H & R Block did this and was cought on tape there would be federal charges...
Hannah and James have fired a proton torpedo into the reactor of the Death Star.
Thanks fellow FReeper BRAY for that wonderful analogy.
Now that ties have been severed the IRS should nail ACORN to the wall.
Dont forget Hannah and James
You don’t understand, ACORN always means well.
ACORN just got slapped with a $548,213.25 federal tax lien from the Internal Revenue Service, on top of $334,121.43 in tax liens from Louisiana state tax officials, and the IRS is just now waking up to the fact that, well, there might be something wrong, here, ya' know?
Thank you Andrew Brietbart, Hannah Giles, James O’Keefe and Glenn Beck!
They don’t pay their freaking taxes to boot?
You have got to be kidding me?
“They dont pay their freaking taxes to boot?
You have got to be kidding me?”
Left wingers don’t pay taxes, they just raise them
I cannot believe this!!!!!!!!!!!!
what low income families pay taxes anymore?
B U M P
ACORN is so sociopathic, I'll bet every 100% of all ACORN prepared returns are filled with endless fraud.
With all the Tax liens on ACORN you would think there would be a full blown corporate AUDIT going on.
The other poster has an excellent point. The IRS had to know they owed millions to them in taxes and they let ACORN play H&R Block?
I think I remember reading that at one point ACORN did one of their community harassment things, like they have done to banks, and H&R Block capitulated to their demands. H&R Block may now be in cahoots with ACORN.
I want to see the big boys sharing a cell with bubba, his boytoy buttah...along with Soros, and all the other loose screws that have taken America for the hopey/changy ride with an a**clown. IRS in bed with ACORN...where’s J Edger Hoover and his blue dress when we need him?
Bray is our Oregon Pitbull!
Wow. This means an additional 3 million new taxpayers to help shoulder the burden! /sarcasm>
and our favorite “pimp” and “prostitute”
While this is a milestone, this battle will no be over until the US is purged of these "community organizers", by whatever name they try to call themselves.

Spotlight on IRS/ACORN ties
There certainly should be. They should also audit every individual tax return for which ACORN provided filing assistance.
You got it...
ACORN provided FREE tax help...
Someone at ACORN has to sign the preparers section at the bottom of each tax forms they prepared...
So they are federally libel.
Oh and ACORN does Nothing for FREE they were paid with tax payer dollars.
ACORN TAX CENTERS
Someone copy this before it disappears!
I can see Bertha saying, “We didn’t do no tax centers.”
"Free tax advice" = how to cheat
When will the IRS sever ties with the Obama administration over scandals?
I mean, look at the list of tax cheats.
They weren't helping low income families, they were helping pimps, hookers and human traffickers.
Those people do have some money to hide.
Awww, the little boy is wrapped in the flag...the ACORN flag!
Actually, it appears ACORN was preparing the tax returns so the filers could take them to someone, like H&R Block, to get them filed. The E-Filer just verifies the return. By doing it this way, the E-Filer can make money,without being th “Paid Preparer”, knowing full well the return is just a rubber stamp with different SSNs.
It’s time to shut down the IRS and the federal income tax. See www.fairtax.org
The IRS is the Obama tool for the redistribution of wealth in America. Distancing themselves from Whoremongers , crack homies,and pimp backers, won’t change that fact. Obama intends to end IRS privacy for individuals.
Read S. 431 of HR 3200:
What it says, pages 195-196, SEC. 431. DISCLOSURES TO CARRY OUT HEALTH INSURANCE EXCHANGE SUBSIDIES.
(A) IN GENERAL.The Secretary, upon written request from the Health Choices Commissioner or the head of a State-based health insurance exchange approved for operation under section 208 of the Americas Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009, shall disclose to officers and employees of the Health Choices Administration or such State-based health insurance exchange, as the case may be, return information of any taxpayer whose income is relevant in determining any affordability credit described in subtitle C of title II of the Americas Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009. Such return information shall be limited to
(i) taxpayer identity information with respect to such taxpayer,
(ii) the filing status of such taxpayer,
(iii) the modified adjusted gross income of such taxpayer (as defined in section 59B(e)(5)),
(iv) the number of dependents of the taxpayer,
(v) such other information as is prescribed by the Secretary by regulation as might indicate whether the taxpayer is eligible for such affordability credits (and the amount thereof), and
(vi) the taxable year with respect to which the preceding information relates or, if applicable, the fact that such information is not available.
And, page 145, section 312, EMPLOYER RESPONSIBILITY TO CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS EMPLOYEE AND DEPENDENT COVERAGE:
(3) PROVISION OF INFORMATION.The employer provides the Health Choices Commissioner, the Secretary of Labor, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, and the Secretary of the Treasury, as applicable, with such information as the Commissioner may require to ascertain compliance with the requirements of this section.
EVALUATION OF THE PASSAGE:
1. This section amends the Internal Revenue Code
2. The bill opens up income tax return information to federal officials.
3. Any stated limits to such information are circumvented by item (v), which allows federal officials to decide what information is needed.
4. Employers are required to report whatever information the government says it needs to enforce the plan.
I said et al! LOL. Of course, thanks to them.
Is Obama’s house of cards coming down?
