Legal lessons from the IRS scandal

Apparently….if I get an audit notice from the IRS, all I need do is claim that I lost my receipts.

After all, a Constitutional Republic wouldn’t hold a citizen to a higher legal stander than a federal agency……would it?

  1. You'd think the lessen would be not to chase endless vapid pseudo-scandals like a distracted lemming in the dark, but to each his own.

    And you'd think sleazy, anonymous, written-off political slush funds disguised as non-profit social welfare groups would concern you more than some IRS auditors checking them out, but to each his own morality as well.



  2. Those are two distinct problems, and opposition of one does not equal advocacy of the other. I have no problem with potential reform of the parameters for tax exempt groups. I have a serious problem with the obfuscation and intransigence of the IRS….proffering absurd excuses for something that all [or most anyway] tax payers know doesn't hold water.

    With the IRS regulations now, groups can be punished with taxes for daring to speak out on issues of the day. I don't think this is right at all. Regulate campaign donations, fine with me. But clobbering people with taxes for saying things is rather outrageous.

    Jersey: if you don't like what they say, ignore it. Don't censor it.
