IRS Demands You Pay Your Taxes, Hires Contractors Who Don’t

According to a new report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), the IRS does not effectively screen its contractors for failing to pay federal taxes.

Since 2012, the IRS has been prohibited from awarding contracts to corporations with federal tax debts and has been unable to systematically prevent those hirings from happening.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Taxes aren't about raising revenue any more. They are about keeping you poor to keep you weak and under control. The big lie about capitalism is that everyone can be rich. This is nonsense. If everyone were rich nobody would collect the trash or repair the roads and sewers. Capitalism operates only by imposing a wealth differential; intentionally keeping the politically unfavored poor enough where they have to take the thousands of distasteful jobs society requires to keep functioning.

Justice Dept Announces it Will End Use of For-Profit Prisons … Prison Stocks Plummet

In a stunning turn of events, the U.S. Department of Justice announced Thursday it will no longer use private prisons to incarcerate federal prisoners, deeming the notorious for-profit facilities both less safe and less effective in providing correctional services than those operated by the government...

GIMME A BREAK! IRS TAX LOOPHOLE CAN REWARD EXCESSIVE WATER USE IN DROUGHT-STRICKEN WEST

ProPublica’s reporting on the water crisis in the American West has highlighted any number of confounding contradictions worsening the problem: Farmers are encouraged to waste water so as to protect their legal rights to its dwindling supply in the years ahead; Las Vegas sought to impose restrictions on water use while placing no checks on its explosive population growth; the federal government has encouraged farmers to improve efficiency in watering crops, but continues to subsidize the growing of thirsty crops such as cotton in desert states like Arizona.

Today, we offer another installment in the contradictions amid a crisis.

In parts of the western U.S., wracked by historic drought, you can get a tax break for using an abundance of water.

That’s a typo, right? A joke?

CEO Tim Cook Decides Apple Doesn’t Have to Pay Corporate Tax Rate Because It’s “Unfair”

Here’s what Apple CEO Tim Cook had to say about it in a long interview published this weekend in the Washington Post:

We’ve said at 40 percent, we’re not going to bring it back until there’s a fair rate. There’s no debate about it. Is that legal to do or not legal to do? It is legal to do. It is the current tax law. It’s not a matter of being patriotic or not patriotic. It doesn’t go that the more you pay, the more patriotic you are.

Cook simultaneously wants us to know he is not a bad “traditional CEO” who just cares about money. No, to the contrary, he feels an “incredible responsibility” to “the communities and the countries that the company operates in” and “the whole ecosystem of the company.”

Therefore, because Cook cares so little about money and so much about communities, Apple won’t be paying its taxes. That’s just fair.

Obamacare Sticker Shock: Average 2017 Premium Surges 24%

The reference, of course, was to the state by state surge in proposed 2017 Obamacare premiums, contrasted with what the government contends is a modest 1.0% inflation rate.

Now, courtesy of a new study by independent analyst Charles Gaba - who has crunched the numbers for insurers participating in the ACA exchanges in all 50 states - we can also calculate what the average Obamacare premium increase across the entire US will be: using proposed and approved rate increase requests, the average Obamacare premium is expected to surge by a whopping 24% this year.

Taxpayers at risk as Obamacare crumbles

The health insurance exchanges that are the beating heart of Obamacare are on the edge of collapse, with premiums rising sharply for ever narrower provider networks, non-profit health co-ops shuttering their doors, and even the biggest insurance companies heading for the exits amid mounting losses. Even the liberal Capitol Hill newspaper The Hill is warning of a possible “Obamacare meltdown” this fall.

GRANDMOTHER WITH AK-47 SAVES COPS BEING ATTACKED BY STREET GANG

Officers Ricardo Cordova and Frank Cho were responding to a call concerning a presumed drug deal in a parking lot, when they came under fire from members of a local street gang.

Fortunately for them, 79-year old Wendy Robinson was watching the events from her kitchen window and decided to intervene. The elderly woman equipped herself with her personal bulletproof vest and an AK-47 assault rifle, and ran to the officers’ rescue, firing more than 160 rounds in the direction of the assailants, injuring two of them.

US Nuclear-Bomber Triad in Pacific for First Time as China Reaches Boiling Point

With tensions in the South China Sea and throughout the Pacific Rim at increasing levels, the Obama Administration adds fuel to the fire by dispatching enough nuclear weaponry to kill everyone in the region.

The United States has dispatched its three strategic bomber types to the Pacific region for the first time, in a bid to reassure allies amid growing aggression from China in the wake of the Hague-based Court of Arbitration ruling against Beijing’s claim to territories in the South China Sea, and the deployment of the THAAD anti-missile system.

Tax Returns: Clintons Cleared $10.6 Million In 2015

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton released her tax returns on Friday, showing that she and her husband Bill made $10.6 million in 2015, after taxes.

The Clintons donated 9.8 percent of the adjusted gross income to charity.

Obama’s Fed Govt Is Doing THIS To Every Medal Winner In Rio – SHOCKING!

Millions of Americans are tuning in to watch our nation’s young athletes break world records and win Olympic gold in Rio.

The incredible athletes have been amazing, and have made us proud. They have trained for a lifetime, and have become the best.

The U.S. Olympic Committee gives $25,000 to every athlete who wins the gold medal (Silver medalists earn $15,000 and bronze medalists earn $10,000). But now, President Barack Obama’s Internal Revenue Service (IRS) will require those athletes to pay more than 1/3rd of their earnings in taxes!

Famous swimmer Michael Phelps, for example, has won three gold medals and will earn $75,000. But he will be forced to pay at least $29,000 in taxes to the IRS.

This is called the “victory tax” which has bi-partisan opposition in Congress. However, a bill is yet to be passed to stop this outrageous tax on our athletes.

Obamacare On "Verge Of Collapse" As Premiums Set To Soar Again In 2017

If Obamacare enrollments continue their current trend and insurers continue to hike premiums at alarming rates then Republicans may not have to worry about "repealing and replacing Obamacare" as it might just work itself out "naturally". The 4th open enrollment period for Obamacare begins on November 1, 2016 and industry experts are warning that another year of tepid demand from "young and healthy" Americans could force more insurers out of the exchanges effectively marking the end of Obamacare as we know it. According to a story published by The Hill, 11 million people bought health insurance through the exchanges for 2016 which was drastically below the Congressional Budget Office's initial projection of 21 million.

SOCIAL SECURITY’S LOOMING $32 TRILLION SHORTFALL (THAT’S RIGHT 32 TRILLION)

But hey, who cares? I mean I’ll be dead by the time Social Security implodes. I paid into it. I want my money. That most people take out far more in Social Security than they put in in a lifetime means nothing to me. I was promised Social Security and darn it I am going to get my check.

The grand kids can figure it out.

(From CNBC)

“We’re not broke in 20 years to 30 years, we’re broke now,” Kotlikoff said. “All the bills have been kept off the books by Congress and presidential administrations for six decades.”

The $6.3 trillion increase in the infinite horizon projection shows that Social Security Administration actuaries are more pessimistic about economic and wage growth, Kotlikoff said.

Of course one of the big problems here is that the politicians will never cut Social Security – it’s too important a tool for manipulating voters – but they think they can increasingly tax it. And that is the soft case the attached article makes.

Donald Trump promises tax-free childcare to jump-start US economy

Donald Trump promised to jumpstart the US economy with the "biggest tax revolution since Ronald Reagan" in the 1980s, saying he would "make America grow again."

Setting out an "America first" economic vision during a speech in Detroit the billionaire promised a slew of tax cuts for working families and companies, a "massive" slashing of red tape, and a fundamental overhaul of international trade deals.

In a direct appeal to female voters, and an attempt to outflank his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, Mr Trump also vowed to allow families to deduct the entire average cost of childcare from their taxes. He said it would not be an "economic disadvantage to have children".

Pennsylvania to Apply 6% “Netflix Tax”

Pennsylvania has a 6% sales tax, but that tax did not previously cover digital downloads and streaming services. That’s changed, thanks to a new revenue package passed by the legislature and signed into law by Governor Tom Wolf. Pennsylvania residents will now have to pay that same 6% tax on their streaming subscriptions.

Though the term “Netflix tax” has become popular, laws like this don’t just affect Netflix – they also affect competitors like Hulu and HBO Now. App purchases and ebooks are also affected.

Judicial Watch: FBI Interviews with Cincinnati IRS Employees Reveal DC Headquarters Delayed Tea Party Applications

Judicial Watch today released 105 pages of newly obtained Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) “302” documents revealing that, beginning in 2010 and lasting through the Obama reelection campaign in 2012, the Obama IRS orchestrated a deliberate policy of burying conservative groups’ tax exemption applications in bureaucratic delays. Interviews with numerous Cincinnati IRS employees in mid-2013 reveal that “Tea Party” group applications were automatically denied approval and assigned to a special “Group 7822” for an extended “inventory” process while waiting for decisions from IRS headquarters in Washington, DC. One IRS manager “asked why progressive cases were not segregated similar to the Tea Party cases, but she did not get any satisfactory answers.”

The two rounds of documents obtained from the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), 294 and 105 pages, are the product of Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests from Judicial Watch.

Because according to their own laws, America never lawfully annexed Hawaii*, therefore according to law Hawaii never became a state, and if the Hawaiian land was never lawfully annexed, the only true claimant to the land, is the Hawaiian national.

The Full List Of Hillary's Planned Tax Hikes

Hillary Clinton has made clear she intends to dramatically raise taxes on the American people if elected. She has proposed an income tax increase, a business tax increase, a death tax increase, a capital gains tax increase, a tax on stock trading, an "Exit Tax" and more (see below). Her planned net tax increase on the American people is at least $1 trillion over ten years, based on her campaign’s own figures.

Hillary has endorsed several tax increases on middle income Americans, despite her pledge not to raise taxes on any American making less than $250,000. She has said she would be fine with a payroll tax hike on all Americans, she has endorsed a steep soda tax, endorsed a 25% national gun tax, and most recently, her campaign manager John Podesta said she would be open to a carbon tax. It’s no wonder that when asked by ABC's George Stephanopoulos if her pledge was a "rock-solid" promise, she slipped and said the pledge was merely a “goal.”

Blundering HMRC paid out £1.9 million in compensation after sending company bankrupt with tax demand cock-up

The embarrassing blunder has been disclosed in the fine print of the organisation's annual report and accounts.

The document also reveals that the department wrote off £120 million last year after scaling back efforts to recover overpaid tax credits.

The setbacks happened during Lin Homer's final year in charge of HMRC.

She walked away from the chief executive role in April with a £2.4million pension pot despite a scandal-hit tenure in charge.

The 59-year-old is entitled to a index-linked income of around £125,000 a year - nearly two thirds of the £190,000 salary she had been earning.

Her pension pot grew by £225,000 last year, when she also received a £20,000 bonus, despite criticism of the taxman’s performance.

Central Banks Making Housing Unaffordable

In response to growing criticism and worry over the housing-crisis in Canada, political representatives have decided to push forth with their plans for new taxes as their solution to help with the problem. One thing that concerns many local residents is the number of vacant houses and other vacant properties around the city, some feel that by imposing the new taxes on these properties that it will prompt those home-owners to either rent or sell their properties and thus help to turn around the problem of houses being too expensive for locals. But others say that taxes aren't a long-term solution to solving the issue of why an increasing number of Canadians cannot afford suitable accommodation for themselves, and if anything they might only make the situation worse.

UK to slash corporation tax to cushion hit from Brexit

Britain has announced plans to cut corporation tax to less than 15 percent in an attempt to cushion the shock of the country's decision to leave the European Union, raising the prospect of competitive tax cuts across the bloc.

Finance minister George Osborne told the Financial Times he wanted to build a "super competitive economy" with low business taxes and a global focus.

The new rate, which was announced without a target date, compares with Osborne's previous target to cut corporation tax to 17 percent by 2020 from 20 percent now. It compares with an average of 25 percent among most developed economies

The IRS Has No Independent Oversight This Tax Season

The Tax Revolution Institute (TRI), whose mission includes promoting transparency, accountability, and integrity in our tax system, has been educating legislators on Capitol Hill for several weeks and is now alerting the public: The only oversight organization identified by the IRS as “independent,” the Internal Revenue Service Oversight Board (IRSOB), does not have a quorum, and as a result has suspended operations.

The IRSOB is responsible for, beyond budget review and long-term planning, “ensur[ing] the proper treatment of taxpayers by the employees of the Internal Revenue Service,” yet it is missing in action this tax season.

According to their website, the IRSOB has had “six open seats” of the seven appointed by the president since January 1, 2015, despite the president having nominated enough members for the IRSOB to have resumed operations a year ago.

IRS’s attempts to further silence nonprofit organizations

The new IRS rule is a one-two punch to the speech rights of non-profit organizations: First, it restricts us from engaging in legitimate policy advocacy by gagging us from even referencing a politician, let alone talking about voting records, during election season. And then, it defines “candidate,” “communication,” and “election” so broadly that it threatens groups with the legal risk of inadvertently crossing the new boundary by unknowingly mentioning an individual running for (or “proposed for”) office. Congress should act immediately to protect the right of private associations to engage in political speech, by defining “political activity” to mean only express advocacy and electioneering. Grassroots organizations will need to press lawmakers to protect their freedom of speech. The principal beneficiaries of the proposed quashing of political speech would be incumbent politicians who prefer that their voting records are not exposed to public scrutiny.

It has not only invaded a defenseless people at will killing thousands and maiming untold numbers, destroyed essential infrastructures while taking no responsibility for reconstruction, has doubled since 2014 the number of illegal Settlers in the West Bank while stealing ever more Palestinian land and blames other nations for defiance they are guilty of and continue with impunity.

IRS Just Admitted it Stole Millions From Innocent People — Here’s the Catch: They’re Giving it Back

This is actually happening to victims of a little-known form of civil asset forfeiture carried out by the IRS on the premise of “structuring” violations.

Dispensary Owner Says Guard’s Murder Was Caught On Video

They can't put their money in the bank or use credit cards or checks because it is illegal under federal law.

AURORA, Colo. (CBS4) – The murder of a security guard Saturday night at a licensed Aurora marijuana dispensary may have been caught on camera.
Police are searching for two suspects described only as black males.

The memorial near the door gave a clue to the sad story. Along with the flowers was a toy figure of a man in a combat uniform. The security guard killed was 24-year-old Travis Mason, a former Marine.Mason’s wife Samantha introduced CBS4 to his three young loving children who had not yet been told their father was murdered.

“I want these people to be found and I want them to be punished for what they did,” Samantha Mason said.
Security for legalized marijuana dispensaries is critical business because the transactions are done in cash.

In Defense of Self-Defense

Most of the mass killings by gun in the United States in recent years—Columbine, Virginia Tech, Aurora, Newtown, Charleston, San Bernardino, and now Orlando—took place in venues where local or state law prohibited carrying guns, even by those lawfully licensed to do so. The government cheerfully calls these venues "gun-free zones." They should be called killing zones.

As unspeakable and horrific as is the recent slaughter in Orlando, it has become just another example of the tragic consequences of government's interfering with the exercise of fundamental liberties.

It's the sort of thing you get from watching movies like The Day After Tomorrow where evil Republican politicians neglect the Flying Global Warming Monster and suddenly waves cover Manhattan and everything freezes.

That's not science. It's hardly even science fiction.

Goldman Crushes Democrat's Dreams: Shows Obamacare Has Cost "A Few Hundred Thousand Jobs"

We suspect Lloyd Blankfein will be receiving a call from The White House (or Treasury) very soon as Goldman Sachs' economists did the unthinkable in the age of political correctness - while investigating the state of under-employment in America, the smartest people in the room found that ObamaCare has led to a rise in involuntary part-time employment, estimating that "a few hundred thousand workers" have been forced to cut hours and has "created disincentives for full-time employment."

What The IRS Just Revealed Should Start A Wave Of Outrage

“More than three years after it admitted to targeting tea party groups for intrusive scrutiny, the IRS has finally released a near-complete list of the organizations it snagged in a political dragnet.

The tax agency filed the list last month as part of a court case after a series of federal judges, fed up with what they said was the agency’s stonewalling, ordered it to get a move on. The case is a class-action lawsuit, so the list of names is critical to knowing the scope of those who would have a claim against the IRS. But even as it answers some questions, the list raises others, including exactly when the targeting stopped, and how broadly the tax agency drew its net when it went after nonprofits for unusual scrutiny.

On Death And Taxes: “The Greed Of The Government Can Never Be Overstated”

Readers, you’re awake to the horrors of the Federal Government, our rapidly-declining GDP and ever-increasing debts. Trillions of dollars have been stolen, in the form of appropriations and programs that funnel directly from the tax-base: the fat “cash-cow” that the government suckles from. The taxes are life-sustaining to the government juggernaut, managed by the ever self-serving “representatives” of Congress who approve pay raises for themselves, immunity from prosecution from (what was formerly) insider trading, and exonerate themselves from any and all ethics violations.

Taxes keep the government going, keep the system emplaced and you the citizen in your place, from birth to death.

US Taxpayers Forced to Pay $3 Billion for Damages in Vaccine Lawsuits — Not the Drug Companies

By Matt Agorist

In 2007, the US taxpayers were told that they were responsible for the negligent actions of several large banking institutions. They were told that in order to prevent “complete and utter chaos” from a banking collapse they must give the banking cartels hundreds of billions of dollars to “bail them out.” Despite an overwhelming majority of the public opposing this action, it was passed with bipartisan support in a matter of hours...

Brexit means cheaper energy bills for the poor claims Boris Johnson as he slams 'unfair and damaging' EU rules on VAT

Britain's energy bills will be slashed by £2 billion a year if voters back Brexit because it would allow ministers to scrap the 'unfair' VAT tax on gas and electricity, Leave campaigners claimed today.

EU rules on VAT introduced in 1993 ban individual member states from cutting VAT below 5 per cent.

EU Passed Tax ID Numbers for Everyone

The EU is laying the groundwork for everyone in Europe to be given a new tax ID number in preparation for moving to electronic money. They are using a National Insurance number pretense to disguise the real objective. This scheme was passed by the Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee last week. This is another step in the federalization of Europe and even the British will have to comply. Naturally, nobody will report this in Britain because it obviously calls for a European Taxpayer Identification Number to keep track of every EU citizen, which include the British.

Oregon babysitter accused of beating toddler avoids charges

The idiot who did this confessed but in Oregon he can't be prosecuted because the baby can't talk yet. This SUCKS!

A babysitter accused of bruising a battered baby won’t face any charges — because the infant can’t speak up.

Even though Joshua Marbury’s 1-year-old son was covered in bruises and scars from the babysitter’s alleged beating, the accused abuser is protected by a 2012 Oregon Court of Appeals ruling that discourages prosecutors from filing charges since the tyke can’t talk.

Marbury was furious as the charges were dropped, after baby Jacob had suffered a severe smack that left a black eye, bruises and a stinging palm print on the child’s face.

The Mexico Way

Clearly, Trump is accusing the Mexican ruling class—the politicians and billionaires like Carlos Slim, the largest single shareholder of The New York Times—of dumping their surplus population on the United States.

That Mexico’s elites are outmaneuvering America’s leaders strikes Trump as a bad thing. Yet, to the American media, the very existence of a Mexican ruling caste with interests different from those of American citizens doesn’t seem to register as a concept with which they are able to deal. Sure, Mexico is a country of over 120 million people that shares a 1,950-mile border with the U.S., but it’s not, you know, Israel when it comes to being important to American interests.

George Osborne STILL defends his £130m ‘sweetheart’ deal with Google but he faces calls for fresh HMRC probe after French police raid internet giant’s Paris HQ

Angela Eagle, the shadow business secretary, accused the Chancellor of being 'far too satisfied' with 'his cosy little tax deal,' which he hailed as a 'major success' for the UK taxpayer earlier this year - despite the firm only paying HMRC £130 million for 10 years of back taxes.

And Meg Hillier, chair of the Commons public accounts committee, said MPs are demanding to know whether HMRC has requested evidence from the French police that led to yesterday's raid.

Squids and the Inner Light of Being

It was an epochal moment for the military and perhaps for all of society. Screwing up her courage, Air Force First Lieutenant Kara-Ann McBee walked into her commander’s office on the D-Ring of the Pentagon and announced that she was a giant squid.

The commander, Colonel R. Boyd Gittim, was stunned. “Squids have lots of arms. Ten, I think.”
“Yessir, ten. But…you see, sir, I feel their presence. Like ectoplasm or something.”

Is Homeland Security’s Royals ‘panty raid’ at Birdies turning into Pantygate?

The raid on Birdies was initiated by feds so local agents could “get their numbers up,” documents newly released to Vice Sports suggestBY ERIC ADLER

Talk about a Royal embarrassment.

In October 2014, the actions of two Kansas City agents from the Department of Homeland Security generated critical national headlines as the Royals were making their run to become American League champions. The agents, both with guns on their hips, entered the tiny Birdies lingerie shop in the Crossroads on Oct. 21, 2014, on what quickly was dubbed a federal “panty raid.”

Tiny Homes For The Homeless Now Under Attack In California

Isaac Davis, Staff
Waking Times

Personal liberty is under attack in so many areas of American society, and combined with a faltering economy, people are in greater need than ever of finding ways to survive economically while still maintaining basic freedoms.

The tiny house movement is one of the many creative ways in which people are out-smarting the matrix of consumerism and debt. Recently, however, we reported on the federal government’s attempts through the Department of Housing and Urban Development to make owning and living in a tiny home more difficult for those who wish to do so.

Trump Disclosure Shows New Roles at Companies Amid Campaign

Trump’s filing to the Federal Election Commission emerged Wednesday, adding new details about the presumptive Republican nominee’s financial portfolio. Yet the 104-page disclosure may not shed much light on the presumptive Republican nominee’s income, or net worth.

Trump released a statement Tuesday saying his net worth had increased to more than $10 billion since his previous filing in July 2015 -- though news reports have questioned that amount. Bloomberg News last year estimated his net worth at $2.9 billion. “They don’t know what they’re talking about,” Trump told CNN last July in response to that estimate.
