Before heading out for a few days R&R with the little people, I wanted to call another IRS report by the Inspector General to your attention. Titled "Fiscal Year 2013 Review of Compliance with Legal Guidelines When Conducting Seizures of Taxpayers' Property," one piece of salient information is as follows: Of the 50 seizures of taxpayer property the IG examined, 17 of them (fully one-third!) were NOT conducted in accordance with the Internal Revenue Code Guidelines.
Surprised? Me neither.
I'll be analyzing and reporting more in days to come. In the meantime, if you take a look and find anything that bears mention, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
