He didn't know if he had notes? Charge this guy with contempt and throw him in jail! Wouldn't a judge do that in a court of law? Why can't/shouldn't Congress?
The list, Ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
IRS = busybodies.... gossips...
You know what? WE ALL ought to STOP paying taxes until they go with a 10% flat tax - just get rid of these liars - I”M SICK of THEIR LYING CORRUPT STOOGES!
I heard that exchange.
The discussion was about this planted Q & A that the IRS did, to try to get the story out on their own terms, before the IG report.
When pressed on some of the details, he siad he would have to look at is notes...
There’s notes! Notes about the planning and damage control of planting a question in some forum, to slow walk the story on a Friday. I hope the committee subpoena’s all notes, emails, etc concerning that discussion.
What if IRS asked a Homosexual group for members donations, other organizations and activities?
The most common IRS response is: Ignorance of the law is no excuse. The commissioner is playing dumb. Didn’t Geithner pull the same BS?
and this is exactly how anyone who get audited should respond..... let’s just see if what is good for the goose if good for the gander
RE: a 10% flat tax
That really doesn’t get the IRS off your back. What is Income? That is the relevant question. If you happen to have a nice uncle who lives in Ireland who loves you and leaves you an inheritance there, THAT is income and the IRS can again snoop into your Irish account and demand 10% of that.
Want to leave your car to your son or daughter? HO HO HO, here comes the IRS demanding that your kids pay 10%.
The flat tax doesn’t solve the problem of the IRS having the power to peek into what you do in your life.
What we really need is to ABOLISH THE INCOME TAX and replace it with a NATIONAL SALES TAX.
This is unbelievable. We are living in another country. The USA has been transformed by the last two elections.
I blame the media. They did not do their job. A real media would have vetted Obama, whatever his real name is, and he would not have made it out of the primaries.

Unfortunately the IRS doesn’t tolerate wise guys.
They will make your audit as painful as they can if you respond with that and you can’t do a damn thing about it.
The only solution is to find a way to abolish this agency and replace it with an agency that purely collect taxes without the power to audit your life.
Which is what a national sales tax does.
I agree the IRS is too powerful. But,the great difficulty with the so-called Fair Tax (the national sales tax you hope for) is that all purchases will go offshore to non-sales tax enitities. It is the problem states are fighting right now and cannot seem to find a solution. And, imagine the customers of the company you work for no longer buying from domestic companies, but rather everything on-line and off-shore...
I’m not a big fan of the “wall of separation” supposedly found in the First Amendment but if the commie libs are going to play that game, then what the IRS thugs did was a violation of the First Amendment. They should all be thrown in jail.
That is why the constitution established a means of capturing those taxes - it's called a TARIFF. Of course, our vaunted corporations will fight that tooth-and-nail!
If millions of us did it the snowball would gather so much steam we could put the entire government out of business!
F U B O ! and F U I R S !
A tariff is laid upon goods which are imported by companies for resale or inclusion in further manufacturing. Buying from offshore simply involves UPS items coming from Mexico/Caribbean/Japan/China/etc. Can you imagine them opening each package? Can't be done. How about self-asigned value? Hmmm. $ 0.
There is no way to capture each sale as it enters the US. AZ tried to compel folks to fess up to all purchases made from out-of-state sources so they could assess a "use tax". Results? Everyone said $ 0.
Talk about Sequester that would be a major sequester!
Gridlock! Problem is the Employer is the one that would be targeted for not sending in the amount with held or not witholding taxes.
The only way it could be sucessfull is if you claim 14 dependents on your w-4 form. However the taxes would be recovered April 15 when you cannot prove you have 14 dependents!
I would say you could handle 3 mos and then recover to the normal deduction. But to get all citizens to follow suit would be hard. Hell their scared $***less of the IRS anyway!
