The Bill That Will Give IRS Power Over Travel

The majority of Americans do not realize how fast power is concentrated in the executive branch of the government, so they ignore, or make excuses for bills and laws passed by Congress, written in deliberately confusing language, that will limit their freedom. That is, if they're even paying attention, and thanks to our corporate controlled media, paying attention takes time...lots of time that most people do not have to witness the convoluted system of barriers to their personal movement...your rights to property, privacy and freedom. The bottom line is recent legislation has effected the average citizen far more than any so-called "terrorist" lurking in the shadows.

Here is a prime example:  S. 1813: MAP-21 “Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century Act” that passed the Senate by 74 to 22, that will more than likely sail through the House. This is a move to: “reauthorize Federal-aid highway and highway safety construction programs, and for other purposes.” This bill, proposed by Democratic Senator Barbara Boxer, includes an amendment that will stop any American citizen from leaving the country based upon a decision by the IRS. Another violation of due process.

Specifically, section 40304 - written by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid - states: “Revocation or denial of passport in case of certain unpaid taxes.” This amendment would authorize the State Department to revoke, deny or limit passports for anyone the Internal Revenue Service certifies as having “a seriously delinquent tax debt in an amount in excess of $50,000.”

Well, since the IRS never makes any mistakes, this should contain the elite power brokers, right?   Because, the vast number of Americans do not even earn $50,000, let alone owe $50,000 in taxes.

I wonder if the IRS has ever accused someone of owing $50k who didn't really owe it? Wonder if they would EVER do it in the future? It's a pretty easy thing for such an agency to do.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) had assessed a Trust Fund Recovery Penalty (TFRP) against our client for unpaid payroll taxes Our California tax attorneys filed a request for a collection due process hearing and convinced the IRS Appeals Officer that its determination that the client was liable for the TFRP was erroneous in its entirety saving our client almost 1million dollars.

While she was married our client incurred joint income tax liabilities in excess of $1,000,000. We were able to convince the Internal Revenue Service that our client was an innocent spouse pursuant to Internal Revenue Code § 6015, and the IRS wiped out her entire tax bill.

Our clients were the owners of a closely held family company. After an audit the IRS claimed that the compensation paid to them was unreasonable, and therefore disallowed $750,000 per year in deductions over a multi-year period. The case was referred to our firm by a tax attorney who had spent over two years negotiating with the IRS, without achieving a settlement. Our firm negotiated a settlement with the IRS that saved our clients $2.1 million in tax, penalty and interest.

The IRS claimed our client owed almost $2 million dollars in income taxes due to alleged errors on his tax returns. After filing a petition with the United States Tax Court we settled the case for approximately $20,000.

The IRS claimed our clients owed over $35,000 as the result of an audit. Due to technical errors made by the IRS we were able to convince the IRS to abate the full amount of the taxes and to refund amounts previously paid. [under $50K but it could have been any amount.]

The IRS determined that our client owed a tax debt of approximately $61,000 based upon a trust fund recovery penalty imposing personal liability for corporate payroll taxes. After our intervention the IRS Appeals Division conceded that a mistake had been made and that our client didn't owe any portion of the trust fund recovery penalty.

The IRS determined that our client owed a tax debt of approximately $155,000 based upon a trust fund recovery penalty imposing personal liability for corporate payroll taxes. We convinced the IRS that our client was not a responsible officer and nothing was owed.

Our client received a statutory notice of deficiency from the IRS after an audit claiming that over $230,000 was owed. After filing a petition with the United States Tax Court a settlement was negotiated for less than $4,600.

An offer in compromise submitted by our client's accountant was rejected when the IRS determined that he could afford to pay the total tax due of over $131,000. We convinced the same IRS specialist in offer in compromise to accept less than $30,000. [there are many examples of substantial amounts owed but negotiated to under $50K]

just a few examples located on the website of a Los Angeles tax lawyer randomly spotted from a Google search. there must be many, many more cases nationwide where the IRS has falsely or incorrectly claimed someone owed substantial amount of taxes of over $50K when that person/entity did not in fact owe that much or in some cases, any taxes at all. Ripe for abuse.
Oh, and let's not forget about the Capitol Controls expected in 2013, which would force Americans to keep their money from going offshore.

The IRS is run by a bunch of morons. I am still fighting them over their error in which they mistakenly claimed I owed them. I proved them wrong and they even admitted it. 5 years later I am still waiting for 5 years worth of tax refunds that they withheld. They claim "they are working on it".

The IRS has their OWN courts. You are guilty til proven innocent. They have their own judges and prosecutors. You do not get your Miranda rights read to you and you do not get free legal representation.

The judge controls what you are allowed to bring in as evidence and you cannot have a copy of the law presented as evidence.

The judge will determine what the law says.
