IRS hit with audit for mismanagement and fraud


Anyone else notice, there's an awful lot of corruption being exposed lately.

A Tv station in Indianapolis has learned the tables are turned on a federal agency feared for its ability to audit taxpayers. The IRS is now the focus of a year-long audit, thanks to federal employees who are blowing the whistle.

Howard Antelis does not look intimidating.

The soft-spoken, gray-haired Midwesterner wears khakis and drives an old SUV. He spends most of his free time on a softball diamond, playing with his dogs and delivering meals to the elderly.

But behind the laid-back, guy-next-door image is a longtime federal employee with a dogged personality and a tenacious sense of duty.

And right now, Howard might just be the IRS's worst nightmare.

United States Government doing what it does best...

How does the federal government deal with such things? Why you give them 16,000 more employees to enforce a healthcare mandate of course. This nation has no chance my friends. I have discovered it is a lot easier on the heart and mind to sit back and watch it crumble to the ground. THEN and only then will we be able to pick up the pieces and get some work done. Until then...stay informed..and prepare.

Change of management? These are times that try man's soul.

Dear DaleinAdaOklahoma,

Please reflect on previous change of management. Movers & shakers, such as we are, take active roles in creating better management. We have a far better chance in having better management. Ron Paul, 2012.

To work hard to affect positive change & see to it that it happens according to your desire suits you. Carry on. I don't do much heavy lifting myself these days.

Oh, boy is the I.R.S. in trouble!!!

I watched ALL SIX parts of the video re the years of overt fraud from illegal immigrants getting tax refunds for relations who live in other countries by lying about their residence... still nothing that related to the title: "IRS hit with audit for mismanagement and fraud." Ah! It's covered in the article below the video. Let's see. I imagine heads will roll! You bet! Here's the punishment for IRS management who knowingly permitted this systemic fraud costing U.S. taxpayers BILLIONS PER YEAR:

"ITIN managers and trainers are going to Washington this week to learn about fraud prevention."

Perhaps this is a good time to remember this: "According to [Rep. Kevin] Brady, a new analysis by the Joint Economic Committee and the House Ways & Means Committee staff estimates up to 6,500 new IRS personnel will be necessary to collect, examine and audit new tax information mandated on families and small businesses as a result of the Affordable Care Act." http://www.examiner.com/article/irs-geared-up-for-the-obamac...

Why didn't IRS employees go to DC in Cherry Blossom season?

Sometime after April fools day is is April 15th. IRS has plenty of fool's money to host their own gala in Washington DC. Why did they wait until now?

Fed Inflates Itself Beyond "Alice in Wonderland" ... $2 Quadrillion Submitted by Mark Twain 09/11/2011. Summary paragraph highlights IRS cash flow. Monopoly Boyz cash take is exposed in their own records. Links to their own admissions in red.

IRS, tax collector for the Fed, since 1913. IRS take is primarily & nearly all transferred to the Fed, servicing their supposed National Debt. 'A fool & his own money are soon parted.'

I was appalled to see the lack of

accountability. If people got caught scamming the IRS out of Billions, instead of the IRS scamming us, do you think the IRS's only response would be to have those people attend a seminar on "how to file taxes correctly?" And thank you for the informative link.

Vixen! Iris... mean she be.

Best fire those handing out the public purse without cause, rhyme nor reason. The aforementioned seminar is yet more folly. Wanton waste of public property or trust is not cured by more taxes nor schooling.
The first order of Iris business should be to stop payment on mythical National Debt. Debt made out-of-thin-air cannot be paid back... Nor forward. Fed funny money should stop. The buck stops here!

    The sign "The Buck Stops Here" that was on President Truman's desk in his White House office was made in the Federal Reformatory at El Reno, Oklahoma. Fred M. Canfil, then United States Marshal for the Western District of Missouri and a friend of Mr. Truman, saw a similar sign while visiting the Reformatory and asked the Warden if a sign like it could be made for President Truman. The sign was made and mailed to the President on October 2, 1945.

    Approximately 2-1/2" x 13" in size and mounted on walnut base, the painted glass sign has the words "I'm From Missouri" on the reverse side. It appeared at different times on his desk until late in his administration.

I believe it best each of us take care & guard our own. Self reliance & integrity will get us by. Next of kin, friends, neighbors help me find my way in time of need.

Responsible & limited governance is enough for me. Control is better local. I believe in just tax paid to government when service is provided. Tax ought to match service rendered to payer.

I have no use nor worth for most of what government bills me. Most all Iris federal tax receipts go to pay the mythical National Debt conjured up by the Fed incantations. I would just as soon Iris be treated like an Oklahoma territory tumbleweed blowing in the wind. Tumble as she surely does, best she hurts no man.

Before I forget, you are welcome.

Scam involving the IRS is outrageous

That over four billion dollars per year are funding tax credits for dependents claimed by illegal immigrants - extended family that includes their own children who do not live in the United States and the children of family members who do not live in the United States - is outrageous. As recommended by that Congressman, we need to all call our representatives in Congress to STOP this!

But did I miss something? I watched Part I and Part of the news clip and didn't hear anything about "IRS hit with audit for mismanagement and fraud." The IRS said it wasn't their fault, that they don't write legislation. They said it would be up to Congress to correct the loophole. Where is the part about the IRS hit with some audit?

Still think the year 2012 is "just another year"?

"Anyone else notice, there's an awful lot of corruption being exposed lately."

That's what has been foretold about this year, that it is the year of awakening. We've learned that the FED is corrupt along with all its central bank allies, the FDA is corrupt, the military industrial complex makes money off of killing human beings, now the IRS is being exposed, the establishment global cabal actually exists, Bilderberg is real, CFR is real, Trilateral Commission is real, Agenda 21 is real, Monsanto is attempting a global takeover of food production by patenting nature if it's mutated genetically, the DOJ sells guns to crime syndicates to create a "problem" with gun ownership, the DEA is running a "war on things-that-cure-you-better-than-drugs" oh and that Obama isn't an actual US citizen.

Did I miss anything? Yes, I did. Awake and Aware people are taking a stand, infiltrating government, shining a light on the corruption all over the world, coming together to talk 'solutions' rather than fighting the problems, creating their own media as the Mainstream slowly dies.

Sounds like any other year to me ;)

So if i do my taxes in Spanish

i can get any deduction i want? ok people will hire illegal immigrants to do their taxes for them in Spanish and get the rich people deductions for as little as 5 dollars an hour. El Cheapo tax service soon to be put H&R block out of business.

Happening everywhere.

Not just in the US.

http://itccs.org/ - http://www.ustream.tv/channel/riseupcanada - will be interesting to learn what the outcome will be of this lawsuit.

But especially the City of London should have everyones attention at the moment. The City and it's Crown Corporation are in big trouble. I hope the brave people of the UK will rise to the occasion and kick them in the nuts.

All we need is one of the insiders to go public will dynamite info. Let's see if their love of money and power will begin to fade now. It's an excellent opportunity for the people of the british isles.

Hmmmm... sounds like this

Hmmmm... sounds like this "crisis" is going to be pushed and pushed by the media (we'll see) and it will be followed by the "solution" which will be a national ID. Isn't that how these things go?

Actually, not in this case

Normally I'd say you'd probably be right. But citizenship of the individual filing the tax return is not at issue here. These people are already filing as NON-citizens with a special number assigned to them by the government. The so-called "loophole" appears to be simply that the tax credit statement must not state that the "dependent children" LIVE WITH YOU IN THE U.S. This is so outrageous as to not be believed.

So, they're going to

So, they're going to essentially be "investigating themselves"?

I have no faith whatsoever that this "investigation" will be anything more than another cover-up arriving at whatever foregone conclusion they decided months ago.

After Donald Rumsfeld got away with "losing" $8,000 per person in the USA, or 2.3 Trillion dollars and got away with it scott free.. The lid was off.

I mean, the Pentagon lost an amount equivalent to 1/4 of our entire national debt at that point in time, and they didn't get in trouble.. in fact, their funding increaed dramatically right after it happened.

This government is corrupt at its core- and its mostly the duel-citizenship people in high places (I'm sure you can guess which country, it's not Iraq) who are calling the shots.

Did you know we send 150 BILLION dollars of aid to Israel a year?

The U.S. is providing Israel with at least $8.2 million dollars each day!

We need to cut off the parasite- and no more duel citizenship in congress that's for sure, we need it to happen NOW before Israel sucks us completely dry.

No mention on local snooze

Just searched all local Austin "news" stations, not one peep.
I forwarded the story to all of them, not holding my breath!

Oh, Howard, Howard, Howard...

"We've been allowing the US taxpayer to get robbed for years now, and... those days appear to be over."

yyyyyeeeaaahhh, right.

I Want the Same Privileges

It looks like the employees who got caught will be rewarded for their good work.

They get to stay out of jail. They get to keep their jobs. And they get paid for retraining (learning instead of earning).

And what if you write a book on how to pay IRS taxes Constitutionally? A book that you can write under free speech? They throw you in jail for not believing what you truly believed.

Yes, to answer your question, there is more corruption

being exposed, mainly in the MSM. It's always been exposed in the 'alternative'. And I'm wondering, too, what's up with that?

Removing the IRS..

I remember Dr. Paul saying the level of money coming in without the IRS would be at 1992 spending levels? Could someone explain where the revenue comes in from and how much it actually would be?


By their own admission, here is the money chase. Merry-Go-Round!

The other day I commented on

the 393,000 illegal immigrants, who, according to Taibbi, had been arrested last year, saying, "...probably had already been given birth certificates and social security numbers". It was meant to be a cynical joke. Little did I know...

And how utterly inappropriate for the IRS to be investigating itself!!!? Where's the A. G.? Oh I forgot, he's rather busy at the moment trying to save his own butt.

It's a sure fire bet, after the Fed is audited, the IRS should be, too, because with this kind of institutionalized corruption, you have to know, they're fleecing the taxpayers-the country- in all sorts of ways.

Next, after cleaning house, audit all Federal employees, unions, anyone on taxpayer's payroll........Oh, Hell! END THE IRS! Deport the crooks to some deserted island after freezing their assets. Jail would cost me a nickel too much for their sorry butts.

Just takes a few good men...and examiner Howard just went to the top of the list. Second only to Dr. Paul, of course.

I believe it's all done by

I believe it's all done by design. To centralize power when they force us into a resource based economy. EVERYONE hates the IRS, whoever brings it down is the "savior" (the anti-christ according to Nostradamus). Also, look at the timing, just when Audit the Fed is picking up steam again. Most people will now focus on a bigger hate they have for the IRS and kick the fed aside.

It ain't no fun when the

It ain't no fun when the rabbit's got the gun.

Payback is hell, isn't it?

The IRS is, plain and simply, extortionists for the bankers. Isn't it great to witness this "train wreck in slow motion"?

The hypocrisy is stunning.

The IRS has purposefully allowed these people to defraud the IRS. Think about that.

The IRS was probably told to let these people in to help fund Social Security and Medicare. This has been a way to keep these programs afloat a little longer. By purposefully allowing workers in, they pay SS & Medicare. The IRS doesn't care about the refunds that these people obtain because they come from a different pot, the Treasury. Some Ponzi Scheme.

Somone should

Good they deserve much more. Americans should rush the IRS building and liquidate its workers and destroy the building.

A guy did that in Austin a year or so ago and killed himself in the process but they just dubbed him nuts. I didn't think he was nuts. I thought he was pissed. Not sure what he was about.
