Where is the RNC and the GOP on ABOLISHING the IRS?

Where is the spine of the American taxpayer? If enough people quit working, to quit paying legally, it would be a contest over who can hold their breath longest underwater -- and the government would lose.

Can you live on less than $10k a year? You sure can. Should you do it to get back the America we used to have? Why not? People used to sacrifice, starve, fight and die for America.

Go Galt and make the tyrants surrender. Without taxpayer support they can't even keep the lights on.

Will someone confirm that Cincinnati is a hub for the IRS with reach beyond Ohio? They keep trying to paint it as small and isolated.

Also, could someone confirm that Ms. Ingram had to approve search criteria? If management is NOT required to approve search criteria, then the patients are running the asylum. Anyone could select their x wife’s new husband, friend’s enemy, or political agenda. This does not happen. Surely management oversight is required. Ingram needs to be in jail.

Cincinnati is where I send my corporate tax documents and I live in New Jersey. It’s a major hub for the IRS.

Lawsuit?

I don't know that a lawsuit would convey the proper, necessary response.

Remarks of Sarah Hall Ingram
Commissioner, Tax Exempt and Government Entities
Internal Revenue Service
Before the
Georgetown University Law Center Continuing Legal Education
June 23, 2009

(snip)

We have set out to collect some information on the point. We are going to start
asking agents, at the end of each examination, to fill out a check sheet about
certain of the examined organization’s governance practices and internal
controls. The check sheet is intended to identify instances of noncompliance
found during the exam, and also to gather information about whether the
organization had, and used, any internal controls.
For each instance of noncompliance found – excessive compensation, political
intervention, inurement, private benefit, material diversion of assets – the agent
should ask, who made the decision to do it or to allow it? Was there a policy in
place concerning the transition or activity, for example, and if so, was it followed?
Let me be clear – we will be gathering objective data, not subjective views. And
we will do this over time. As we collect enough information to be interesting, we’ll
share it with the community, and everyone can have a go at it.

(snip)

On the more enthusiastic side of the scale is Independent Sector, which has led
the tax-exempt sector in embracing the adoption of good governance principles.
Commissioner Shulman has spoken in praise of Independent Sector’s efforts, as
did Steve Miller when he was the Commissioner of TE/GE. As you know,
prominent members of the Senate Finance Committee (http://www.finance.senate.gov/about/subcommittees/) are also sitting on the
enthusiastic side of the scale.

(snip)

Our creation of the ROO and the Exempt Organizations Compliance Area,
together with the new Form 990, creates compliance opportunities and choices
we didn’t have before. We are better able now to detect and follow-up on actions
by organizations that are questionable or that appear to violate the Code. And,
yes, we continue to work on the many suggestions for a voluntary compliance
program – a program that would enable entities that find themselves out of
compliance can work with us to bring themselves back into compliance.

(snip)

I’ll begin by adopting as a goal something that is already well underway –
providing uniform and measured training about governance to our determination
and examination agents. The ACT, our advisory committee, can claim much of
the credit for pushing this idea. In their 2008 report, they expressed concern that
agents were applying a variety of governance standards in an inconsistent and
somewhat random way. They pointed out that determination specialists
sometimes insisted that the applicant adopt a conflicts policy containing a
specific feature, have a board with a particular number of members, or conform
to various benchmarks of board independence. In the examinations program,
the ACT noted that our practices varied in terms of what we might require or
accept as a corrective action plan to avoid revocation or other penalties.
We responded to these concerns in November by adding a governance training
program to the Exempt Organizations work plan. We provided an initial round of
training in April to all of our exam agents and followed that with training for our
determination specialists. And this month we are conducting training for our folks
here in Washington, DC.

Can you find this anywhere on the site?

My views are also informed by the five-year Strategic Plan that the IRS hasannounced for the period 2009 - 2013. It is available on the IRS Web site, and ifyou look at it you will see that the continued focused oversight of the tax-exemptsector
