Skip to comments.Guess Who Else the IRS is Targeting? (Todd Starnes)

By now youve heard that the Internal Revenue Service has been engaged in Nixonian-style investigations of conservative groups.
Words like Tea Party or patriots trigged special scrutiny by government revenuers. That was back in 2011 about the same time I started hosting this daily commentary. And based on my subject matter, its safe to say that President Obama and I are not exactly b.f.f.s.
Not too long after we launched the commentaries, I got word that I was being audited all the way back to 2004. I hired an attorney and CPA and began the arduous task of battling the IRS. My CPA said hes never seen the government agency so uncooperative. After months of hammering out a deal they notified me last month that they re-tallied the numbers and discovered I owed twice as much as they originally said.
My CPA said something just didnt feel right. The IRS, he said, seemed overly aggressive. It was almost like they had an axe to grind a vendetta.
Friends, dealing with the IRS over the past few years has been nothing short of government-sanctioned bullying a license to shakedown.
And the latest revelations should strike fear into the heart and bank account of every American taxpayer. Because if the government can come after someone like me you could be next.

Perhaps some “newspaper” will print the names like they did the gun owners.
It is way past time for a MAJOR tax revolt in this country.
The push back needs to be severe.
I thought they could only go back 5 years in an audit?
A huge name in all this is one Rush Hudson Limbaugh III. If he reveals on his radio show that he has been harassed by the IRS since January 2009, then all heck is going to break loose and President Obama could face the prospect of impeachment.
It is the mighty IRS. They can do anything they want to. We are a blade of grass they are the lawnmower. . . . FOR NOW.
It is way past time for a change. . . .
They can go back further if they find repeated willful avoidance of taxes (cheating).
I think they know that and will leave our hero alone. . .
To tell it like it is, that is what is so strange about the Democrats and this administration. Unlike Clinton, who knew when to fold 'em a little bit, this bunch counterattacks with incredible ferocity EVERY TIME they are criticized or shown to be doing something wrong. Obama and his leftist cronies do NOT back up at all...EVER, I'm noticing. This is not going to end well.
So how long are you supposed to keep records, forever? I’d need a storage facility...
This is a pretty juicy story. Hard to resist. A good distraction from Benghazi. Obama has decided to dangle this bait at this time because he can’t personally get burned here. Follow this, make sure the people are punished who are behind it, but you will never implicate Obama in this. Stay focused on Benghazi.
There’s a reason this story just broke.
No, I don't think so. It was Mark Levin and his Landmark Legal Foundation that broke the scandal wide open. Obama's minions had nothing to do with getting the story out, and the timing was coincidental to Benghazi.
Nope! They can go back over 40 years!
IRS GOES BACK 41 YEARS TO ASSESS GIFT TAX
See post #14.
This is the District of Criminals we are talking about so why expect anything better?
He’s certainly harassed all the time by the New York state revenue goons.
Going Galt is an attractive option but hard on people with families to support.
Color me "Open To Suggestions."
The IRS makes the KGB look like the PTA.
The irs IS the modern day KGB. It has detailed information on all people. It has the power (but not the right) to destroy, and to put out of business.
This is government by the people, the land of the free?
BS this is tyranny.
Abolish the criminal IRS
Abolish the IRS
But dont forget that they are trying to sneak pass an Amnesty destroying bill through Congress( call Congress)
Imprison Obama and the IRS workers .These actions by the IRS were illegal unconstitutional
Repeal the income tax( 16th amendment) and replace that sorely needed revenue for fake global warming studies by replacing the income tax with a tax on China imports
I had to deal with the IRS over an item with my taxes. I under paid in 2010 and they are just now contacting me. Efficient? We were discussing me breaking the amount I had to pay extra (on top of the check I already wrote back then) into two payments (of course interest and penalties apply). I knew it was fruitless to haggle, but it struck a nerve with me when the chick said that the money was the IRS’s and they had been in a sense loaning it to me so I had to pay interest. I very nicely said, “really like when I let you keep a year’s worth of withholding and I don’t get to charge you interest?”
I think it may have confused or upset her. I am waiting for the axe to fall now. I should have just kept quiet and herded myself along the path with the other sheep.
And, how many of Obama’s are WAYYYYYYYY behind in their Federal taxes?
Targeted by the IRS today, by drones tomorrow. Welcome to the USSA Komrad. This will be part of the final solution to the gun owner problem.
According to Himself, Himself, he’s harassed even more since he’s left. Every year he has to prove to New York that he neither lives nor works there.
Dana Loesch just tweeted your thread.
Levin might have been working on the case for a long time, but are you sure he didn't just get a hot tip that tipped the scales and told him that now he had enough to go public? You don't find the timing a bit suspicious?
