Dog ate my tax receipts resolution

Lets see if Almighty Big Government will allow the peasants the same latitudes it allows for itself.

 

snip-

Taxpayers who do not produce documents for the Internal Revenue Service will be able to offer a variety of dubious excuses under legislation introduced by Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX 36) a week after the IRS offered an incredibly dubious excuse for its failure to turn documents over to House investigators.

“The United States was founded on the belief government is subservient and accountable to the people. Taxpayers shouldn’t be expected to follow laws the Obama administration refuses to follow themselves,” said Stockman. “Taxpayers should be allowed to offer the same flimsy, obviously made-up excuses the Obama administration uses.”

Under Stockman’s bill, “The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act,” taxpayers who do not provide documents requested by the IRS can claim one of the following reasons:

1. The dog ate my tax receipts
2. Convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction
3. Traded documents for five terrorists
4. Burned for warmth while lost in the Yukon
5. Left on table in Hillary’s Book Room
6. Received water damage in the trunk of Ted Kennedy’s car
7. Forgot in gun case sold to Mexican drug lords
8. Forced to recycle by municipal Green Czar
9. Was short on toilet paper while camping
10. At this point, what difference does it make?

Stockman’s bill comes a week after the IRS refused to turn over to House investigators emails from former Exempt Organizations Divison director Lois Lerner that would implicate agency personnel in illegal targeting of citizens critical of President Barack Obama.

The IRS claimed a “computer glitch” has erased the hard drives of all incriminating evidence. The IRS further claimed the hard drives are not available for forensic investigation as they had just been destroyed for recycling.

The full text of the resolution follows:

The resolution may be cited as the “Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Resolution.”

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) must allow taxpayers the same lame excuses for missing documentation that the IRS itself is currently proffering

Whereas, the IRS claims that convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction is sufficient justification not to produce specific, critical documentation; and,

Whereas, fairness and Due Process demand that the American taxpayer be granted no less latitude than we afford the bureaucrats employed presently at the IRS;

Now, therefore, be it resolved that it is the sense of the House of Representatives that unless and until the Internal Revenue Service produces all documentation demanded by subpoena or otherwise by the House of Representatives, or produces an excuse that passes the red face test,

All taxpayers shall be given the benefit of the doubt when not producing critical documentation, so long as the taxpayer’s excuse therefore falls into one of the following categories:

1. The dog ate my tax receipts
2. Convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction
3. Traded documents for five terrorists
4. Burned for warmth while lost in the Yukon
5. Left on table in Hillary’s Book Room
6. Received water damage in the trunk of Ted Kennedy’s car
7. Forgot in gun case sold to Mexican drug lords
8. Forced to recycle by municipal Green Czar
9. Was short on toilet paper while camping
10. At this point, what difference does it make?

In any case, IRS can see the NSA for a good, high quality copy.

Very funny, too bad it`s true, if this isn`t grounds for a revolution I don`t know what is.  Trouble is 1/2 the country sees the IRS as the government agency that sends them their earned income credit check.

Here's a good one

I flubbed up on my MN corporation tax return, and forgot to add back the DPAD federal deduction...you know the deduction for businesses to in effect lower the corporate tax bite. well, it was a $3000 hit , plus interest which I paid. Now I get another letter, another $200...this time because...get this...I had the audacity to send them a paper check. I am not making this up...since I did not pay via electronice transfer, our goofy liberals in the loony state tax department, determined that I should have to pay an additional 5% penalty, plus an additional interest charge.

 

And I know, Boris is going to read this and say..".hey....MN is a great place to do business...blah blah blah. GO leave it...leave your business behind for someone else...we will always have 7-11's and ag land. Lets see you move that, REd you POS...blah blah blah."

 

 

GOtta love those guys that never ran a business , like  BOris and PUke, that know all this stuff.

Taxes must be paid on time or it will trigger penalties and interest. This is nothing new in that has been the policy for decades.

You hate the IRS because they facilitate the laws that congress passes. Just admit that you don't want to support our democratic republic. Amazingly you still think you are a patriot.

 

Even your beloved scripture says render unto Caesar. Then you batch because Caesar does a little siezing.

The IRS broke the law. It has declared war on me, not the other way around. It is not I who hates, I am the hated.
