    Lol.
  • You can have adequate staffing at the IRS make sure taxes are properly calculated and collected, or you can shoestring their budget and have Congress cover the shortfall by raising taxes on the honest or going deeper into debt.  Option B is for if you're either stupid or an asshole.
  • Go back to Somalia, submitard.

    Paying your taxes is the highest for of patriotism, right next to supporting your democratically elected leaders.
  • Subby can't read, or as we call it on Fark "a day that ends with a 'y'"
  • They new agents need to target churches. There is a lot of the mega churches skirting the law
  • First line of TFA:


    The IRS is doing a better job at getting new employees on board quickly, a new federal audit has found.


    Last paragraph of TFA:


    As the inspector general report notes, the IRS currently faces a hiring freeze, though it generally brings on thousands of new employees a year to help manage the tax filing season.


    Learn to read, subby.
  • Good. Unless you're a tax cheat and don't want to get caught.
  • Regardless of the article, a tax agency naturally needs to grow as the population grows.

    /Obvious scaremongering is obvious.
  • You can't spell bloated incompetence without IRS.

    This ... churches should be taxes as any other property owner in this country is.  Sorry, you don't get to do a runaround on tax law because your sky fairy is special.

    Actually you do.
  • Now comes the winter of our discontent.

    If Mr. Obama had allowed some subsitive cuts to be made; the IRS wouldn't need to hire more people than normal. Then we wouldn't have to endure the UFIA that is the audit. I wouldn't be surprised if audits go up by the same percentage hires went up.

    / I know, I know; it's not his fault, he isn't responsible for come up with the budget or anything. Oh wait....

    Meet reality:

    It has a known liberal bias, but you might get along if you tried it.

    You do under current law but perhaps you shouldn't.  I understand the purpose of tax exemption for churches inasmuch as donations to churches are intended to be used for charitable purposes but it seems there are so many churches now that use their income to preach politics and build shining crystal abominations rather than set up food banks or clothing drives.  I feel that churches should be subject to objective rules around their spending so that things like charitable expenses remain as tax write offs while other income is subject to standard business accounting.
  • How dare an organization responsible for collecting taxes increase staffing needs. Go back to the old system - one guy with a bucket in the town square.

  • From the IRS website itself:

    "CI agents are appropriately armed to perform their law enforcement duties. The standard issue CI service weapon is the Sig Sauer Model 228 nine millimeter semi-automatic pistol."

    So pay up or die.

    Standing their ground isn't permissible for IRS agents? Are they also exempt from the second amendment?

    Yeah, the Special Agents who investigate criminal fraud, like claiming imaginary dependents and falsifying records. Not the dork with the accounting degree who shows up because you can't do arithmetic.
