The I.R.S. looks to be logging itself some frequent-flyer mileage

The Internal Revenue Service has launched a new global program to target what it calls “high wealth individuals,” IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman said Monday.

“Through our new global high wealth operating unit we are taking a unified look at the entire web of business and economic entities controlled by high wealth individuals so we can better assess the risk such arrangements pose to tax compliance,” Shulman said at the National Press Club on Monday.

Shulman said the IRS is using “our robust and evolving enforcement program that ensures that everyone pays what they owe.”

Is he doing it on purpose? Meaning, is he egging on the one-world government conspiricist set on purpose with that fairly unveiled language?

"Taxniques?" What a tool.

We'll have more on this guy, Shulman, in a few posts.

Even in my most charitable moods, I'd tend to agree with your assessment.
