So you Cannot do your taxes because the dog
ate your hard drive? No problem! According to a press release from Congressman Steve
Stockman (R- Texas),
taxpayers who do not produce documents for the Internal Revenue Service will be
able to offer a variety of dubious excuses under new legislation he introduced 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
shouldnt 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.
Stockmans bill, The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act, taxpayers who do not provide
documents requested by the IRS can uses the same excuses That the IRS
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.
