IF WE IMPLEMENTED THE "FAIR TAX" WE WOULD BRING BACK 20 TRILLION DOLLARS IMMEDIATELY TO U.S. SHORES. THIS WOULD HAVE AN IMMEDIATE POSITIVE IMPACT ON OUR NATION. TAXATION IS ALL ABOUT CONTROL, NOTHING MORE.
The IRS is too easily weaponized against the People. This is merely another example of its corruption.
you want to know abot real tax laws and how they are supposed to be levied... here you go.
Whistleblowers/Guardians of honesty must be rewarded adequately so that more of them come forward without fears for their family’s livelihood and economic security. Of course those making false accusations must receive their just due as well. Ultimately this trend will discourage corruption in all classifications throughout government and all private concerns.
I worked with Howard, until I just could not take the frustration anymore. He will fight till the end. Way to go Howard !!!
Great! Now more honest IRS workers should step and join him and reveal all the fraud that takes place with this agency. He just got a paycut for saving billions of dollars of our money! Why is that allowed? Where is the justice? He should earn a huge reward, they have a program where you can call and report people who cheat on their taxes and receive a percentage of the amount the IRS recovers! This man should get no less. This is the agency that is going to be in charge of the healthcare money. Don't you just see the massive fraud that will be involved in that??? I do.
We also have to remember that people, like this whistle blower, is putting IRS employees at risk!!!! Will there be another plane flown into another building? And innocent people killed? There are better ways to do this!!!!!
I'd love to see a liberal try to argue for a bigger government when we have an IRS that supports criminal behavior. We need a FLAT TAX NOW!!!!!!!!!!!
Wow, excellent. I am a retired federal worker, and I was tired of being told by the "empty suit" managers to look the other way on wasted money. My ass't manager retalieated and created problems for me. I started to write a book about it but got sick ill and had to retire. I saw only the tip of the iceberg and I give this man credit for speaking out.
his managers are pissed because, all of their pre-planned kick back's have been halted for the time being! he messed with their money and now,,their screwing around with his along with his job performance! friggin crook's!
Remember that airplane that crashed in Florida a number of years ago, and all on board were killed because of an oxygen tank on board, or something else that was illegal?
I have a friend who was an inspector for the FAA, when they discovered that companies were shipping forbidden and dangerous cargo on passenger planes they reported it and filed a complaint. The results?
They were fired! After years of legal battles, they were re-instated with pay. But by then didn't want the job back.
More of our fine government action of which we can certainly be proud as Americans. CORRUPTION. Fire the ba$tards.
Very upsetting and kudos to this man for exposing the insanity. Thank you Scoop. Everybody call your representtives, and email this to your friends if they have still not awoken, please.
Massive IRS fraud= Massive illegal invaders. Yeah, I'm alway's amazed when I see a "brand new pick-up truck" passing me by, with the entire cab full of these Paco's, grinning ear to ear and thinking-- oh' how nice............, and on our TAX dollar's no less.
and two year's back, the IRS came after me for 78,000 on my 401k, I call them BASTARDS, sorry for the language!
The La RAZA movement is infiltrated in many levels of our Government. I hope this whistle blower hires a bodyguard.
How much do you want to bet this will not make it into the LSM and that we will hear nothing more of it?
That's enough evidence for me to see that it is time to shut the IRS down, and implement a flat tax. Wankers!!
I'm so sick of having to pay my taxes every year (self-employed) and every quarter, only to see garbage like this going on. Anyone here think I could get away with this and see the light of day again? Thought not. Who says we should stop using "the I word" (illegal) in as a descriptor for undocumented "immigrants"? Okay. How about we use cross-discipline scofflaws, instead? Happy 4th of July, indeed.
How about we use the word foreigner. As in...The president wants to allow foreigners to live here without papers,foreigners to get free healthcare ,foreigners to be allowed to vote, foreigners to get welfare, foreigners to take American jobs and foreigners to commit tax fraud. Puts the real situation in perspective doesn't it?
What happens when a legal citizen commits tax fraud? Will the penalties be the same for the illegals who stole from us and the officials who allowed it? That's what is most disturbing about this story - nothing will be done about any of these people. The officials may be disciplined but allowed to keep their jobs, and the illegals won't be rounded in up and tossed in jail like any of us would if we did the same crime. And retaliation by the IRS against this guy by slashing his performance rating scores? This type of action would be deemed actionable against any American employer who does the same to a whistleblower, but apparently not if the government is the employer.
Its good and refreshing to see an honest ethical person working for the IRS, or for any government agency or burueacracy for that matter. They are truly few and hard to find.
The Austin Texas IRS center processes all international items, tax returns as well as issuing these ITIN's. Years ago the IRS started issuing ITIN's to those who need to file a tax return but aren't qualified for a Soc Sec No. That way they would be able to file a tax return and the IRS would have some way of identifying the person. Recently, I heard or read something about the IRS doing something to scrutinize the program that issues these ITIN's. Now, seeing this video, I know and understand the need to do so.
Over the years, I had been involved in various CPA Society tax committees that deals with the IRS. Accordingly, I've attended many meetings with CPA's and IRS managers, frequently upper level managers. Much cooperation has been fostered through this type of venue and has made the IRS easier to work with. Yeah, I know that can be a bit difficult to believe, but it really could be much worse. No internal IRS corruption matters were ever on the agenda at these meetings. But bad CPA's and their transgressions were always brought up by IRS management.
Some of the allegations I heard were from reliable sources. Some were from former IRS personnel, who still had contacts on the inside. Through these contacts, over the years I had heard about various corruption scandals within the IRS through third parties and occasionally from a manager I worked with on various cases and knew personally, who might say something privately and off the record, when no one else was around. These more honest managers did seriously detest the corruption they saw, but also knew that they really couldn't do much about it as it went well up above their level. They just did their best to steer clear of it. It was always kept internal within the IRS. You never ever publicly heard about these scandals. Rarely, if ever did a scandal go public. Frequently, after hearing one of those rumors about a IRS scandal, several managers got "re-assigned" never to be heard from again. Presumably, the re-assigning was to put them in some sort of a job, in a distant office, where they could be watched carefully until their retirement.
So did anyone go to JAIL ??? It sounds like willful fraud from the clip. A bad job review or resignation is certainly not punishment enough.
Someone was making serious money on this and it wasn't the undocumented applicants.
Well thankfully, the gov't who allows this kind of malfeasance won't run our health care. Whew!
Little by little and step by step, the correction of what is wrong in America comes into glaring focus before the eyes of the American citizen.
Patriots like Mr. Antelis are exposing the evils of an out of control government.
If you remember nothing else on this DAY of INDEPENDENCE, remember that a vast government requires vast revenue. That revenue comes from our pockets only to be given to those who have no legal stake in America. WE are paying for our own subjugation.
It is long overdue. Where is the call to de-fang the IRS? How does this branch of the Treasury perpetually get away with this? 73,000 pages of tax code that no one can understand, and 4,500 more IRS agents being hired to enforce ObozoCare? At the minimum, isn't' this a States issue? Does this stink like rotting fish, or is it just me?
These sound like Obama's kind of people.
Are they going to move to Chicago, the machine there would take to these kinds of government employees.
Reign in the corruption and fraud and then lets talk about the national debt. The attack on the middle class must stop if we are to survive as a nation.
I guess this guy's next stop is his Congressman. Time to invoke the whistle blower law for his protection. They always start with your review first. Can't fire you if you're a good employee, sooooo.....
Instructing auditors to look the other way when fraud is being perpetrated within the IRS; another reason not to trust our own government. I don't understand the mindset of the leadership (?) within that agency...they want to deliberately hamstring our economy!
They are simply trying to avoid ACLU lawsuits. They've confused "discriminating" with "discrimination." This is just one of the million freedom-losses we suffer when we disallow the use of common sense in exchange for fear of lawsuits.
Howard Antelis is a true patriot who will be harassed, threatened, isolated, marginalized, and destroyed by the system.
It can be shown that if corruption, waste, theft, and mismanagement were reduced throughout the fed govt and its programs, we would not have an annual deficit of 1.3 to 1.6 trillion dollars. Start with Medicare, Medicaid, the fed pill program, and go from there. It's absolutely scary how the govt wastes taxpayer dollars.
They'll start cracking down on it? Yeah, I'll believe it when I see it. The IRS will destroy an American citizen over small amounts of money, yet they look the other way for illegals? I find that a little suspicious and knowing how overbearing they are I don't believe they didn't have an agenda behind this. They were probably told to do it by left wing politicians.
This man has a lot of guts. I know that he realizes his main job as an IRS employee is to get as many illegal immigrants as possible to vote for Obama in November. He has to know this, his lackluster performance review and cut in pay are a testament to this.
It's amazing, so much fraud and wasted taxpayer money, yet Obama tells us these programs are the key to our economic future.
I will admit the obvious though, I did not go to Harvard, and Obama did. So take my words with a grain of salt. I am ignorant and not part of the nobility.
You have a point. For all I know, I might be the only one who thinks what I say has any substance, ever. :)
Well, we were warned that Obamacare punishes doctors for having too many visits for a certain ailment. It's not out of the realm of possibility that they will be punished for not making sure you get preventative care.
It is a good thing that we have Obama Care, because otherwise, I would have to make these decisions for myself.
This is my sister. She found out that the new laws are already dictating what her doctor does concerning her.
