The IRS Has Gone Rogue

The US laws were founded on the principal that "you are innocent until proven guilty". The government has to prove you are guilty. But the IRS has turned that around. With them, you are guilty unless YOU prove you are innocent. And even with proof, you may still be considered guilty for various reasons including the fact that they want you to be guilty. I would say that this is the only group that does this but I think there are also a couple more agencies that does the same thing.

While the intent was clear, there is nothing to prevent a 'rogue' individual with government backing to destroy an inocent individual with 'audits' and all sorts of trumped up charges often called 'fishing expeditions' in which a person is hounded time and again until one day, often as a result of exhaustion, the person says something that is incorrect or 'inconsistent' and then comes the 'gotcha'.that brings further investigations and the tremendous cost of getting legal assistance. Many innocent people have suffered an incorrect terribly adverse decision and had to live with it because they could not afford the cost of appeals and 'the best' legal counsel.

A president who says “I haven’t raised taxes” has authorized his Internal Revenue Service issue a “final rule” that will illegally tax some 12 million individuals, plus large employers, in as many as 40 states beginning in 2014. Oklahoma’s attorney general has asked a federal court to block this rule. Members of Congress have introduced legislation in both the House and the Senate to quash it.

At first glance, it might not seem that the IRS is up to anything nefarious. The rule in question concerns the Patient Protection and Affordable Care...
