OUR PROPOSAL

Ever heard the expression ďdonít throw good money after badĒ? Well thatís exactly what the IRS enforcement is. Itís a losing proposition and the prospect of an IRS audit deters tax cheats about as much as the death penalty deters murderers.

Itís time for CHANGE. Itís time for REFORM. Itís time to WIPE THE SLATE CLEAN. Hereís how it would work:

We immediately stop all new IRS audits of prior year returns.

Anyone who cheated on a prior year return can register with a database*. Registering your return will acknowledge your commitment to comply with the law for all future filings. Your penalty for cheating is determined by the length of time that has passed since filing your fraudulent return:

Under 3 years -- Cheaters must pay a $1,000 fine, attend a tax preparation education series, and undergo a background check. In addition, they are put into a probationary program where their returns will be singled out for audit for five consecutive years. If they file clean returns for each of those five years then they receive earned-amnesty.

3 to 5 years -- Cheaters must pay a $500 fine and are enrolled in the probationary program for three years.

5 or more years -- Full and immediate amnesty.

Starting with tax year 2006, the number of IRS auditors will be doubled and the entire enforcement budget will be used to select, investigate, and audit new returns.
FROM 2006 ON, NO ONE WILL DARE CHEAT THE IRS BECAUSE THEY WILL, WITHOUT A DOUBT, BE CAUGHT. TAX COMPLIANCE AND REVENUE WILL SKYROCKET, ERASING OUR NATIONAL DEBT IN JUST YEARS. LETíS FORGIVE THE PAST SO WE CAN GUARANTEE A BETTER FUTURE.
What about all the people who keep their noses clean and do the right thing and pay their taxes every year? Now, all of a sudden, there's little if no repercussions for breaking the law?

FACTS

FACT: The IRS spends billions and billions of dollars ($6.9 billion in 2006) on enforcement.
FACT: The odds of being audited by the IRS right now are extremely low.
FACT: The IRS uses what they call ďAudit AnxietyĒ to keep people honest when calculating their taxes. Since the odds of an actual audit are so low, this anxiety has been tempered in recent rules, resulting in a far higher number of fraudulent returns.
FACT: The IRS recently reported (2/14/06) that $345 billion in taxes owed for 2001 has not been collected. They also report that enforcement efforts will recover about $55 billion of this.
FACT: A $290 billion gap in just one year is NOT good business.
FACT: If tax cheaters were eliminated, every person in this country would see an immediate 30% decline in the taxes they owe.
FACT: The ONLY way to eliminate cheating is to take a hard line on it from NOW ON. We canít change the past, so letís forget it and start changing for the better now.
Holy crap...and people are always pissing and moaing about the "loop-holes" used by the rich/corporations to save on their taxes...atleast they pay taxes.

I was about to say, is this an article that's trying to point out how ridiculous it is for us to forgive "illegal aliens" because of enforcement issues, and applying this "theory" to other areas? Or is this a serious article?

The arguement given by the pols is that since there are 11 million plus illegal aliens, it would be too difficult to enforce the law and deport them so they wouldn't even try. Rush Limbaugh proposed that the 40 million people who pay taxes should stop since it would be too difficult to go after so many people. He said it facetiously, but I think he has something there.
