DO NOT HANG UP THE PHONE ....

irs

In 2015, Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) highlighted the problem in a letter to the IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, explaining that “In a tax system based on voluntary compliance, the integrity of the tax administration process and protection of taxpayer rights is of paramount importance. To those ends, Congress put in place specific restrictions on government action in the examination process.”



The strangest thing about the IRS is that Lois Lerner is not (NOT) in prison; and Donald Trump has left IRS Commissioner John Koskinen at the helm?!?. Meanwhile, the agency continue to bolster tax collection/political assassination weaponry with this killer.  Extrapolation must lead to the point where the IRS will deputize bill collection agencies to scrutinize tax return information for a commission.

"Extrapolation must lead to the point where the IRS will deputize bill collection agencies to scrutinize tax return information for a commission."

Hmmm…shades of the Roman Empire, wherein short-staffed provincial governors hired level upon level of private subcontractors (Publicani, aka "tax farmers") to collect fees and taxes, not for a "cut" but for whatever they could collect over and above. Needless to say, it was a system rife with corruption.

It's beyond me why Koskinen is still there, or why Trump hasn't initiated a wholesale purging of all Uhbamunists in his administration.
There should be tens of thousands of newly unemployed in the DC area by now.

One of the things that brought the Roman Empire down was "tax farming" using private agents to collect taxes. Of Course the Senators were exempt from this.

So what does Koskinen have that he is holding over The Donald's head?
