    Wayne Allyn Root, an anti Obama crusader, had just won in court over an IRS audit from his 2007-2008 tax filings.
    Five days later he was hit with a 2009-2010 tax filing audit. In thirty years he has had 2 prior audits and showed to owe nothing.

    The problems started in January 2011, when Root, who claims to have a perfect tax record, was put through a surprise audit. At the time, he claims to have received a call from an IRS agent who said that he is a fan of Root and that it would be “an honor” to audit him — sentiments that struck the commentator as odd. The agent also told Root that he has read his political columns, listened to him on radio and visited his web site, and that he agrees with his politics.
    Three months ago, the ordeal came to a close, with a tax court finding that Root owed no monies in his past filings. But just when he assumed that the situation had been resolved, something bizarre happened: Root, who was previously seeing his 2007 and 2008 filings under audit, was hit with a new IRS investigation just five days after the last one. In the new audit, the IRS began exploring his 2009 and 2010 filings. The closeness of the two audits is something that Root’s lawyer claims to have never seen or heard of before.
    What was even more odd about the entire ordeal was the way in which Root was informed about the audit. Rather than receiving a letter — the means through which his accountant claims audits are typically commenced — Root received the aforementioned cryptic phone call. The politician claims that his fears were recognized, as the “agent clearly had an agenda” and “was acting unreasonably.”

    no facts... just more nonsense from the blaze.

    it's funny watching what, in your mind, passes for sources.

    That happened to my husband and I 3 consecutive years in a row some years back. A disgruntled employee in a state capacity didn't care for a deserved promotion that was received and began making false allegations against us to an IRS agent, who naturally was interested in appeasing the "witness" only for us to backtrack, show honesty. When we received the third notice, we contacted local authorities, who pinpointed the problem to an individual who regularly made false allegations against people to the IRS on a 25-complaints a year basis to people she targeted for petty revenges of one kind or another, real or imagined. This one she did for a "friend" who did not receive the promotion and was told they would never get a promotion because of not being qualified by a boss who I am certain also received IRS inquiries 3 or more consecutive times.

    Seems this followed some kind of law Congress passed back then that if someone turns in someone else for tax evasion, they get a percentage of "Tax recovered." Our detractor did not know she was up against people with impeccable attention to paying their fair share with pride in and love for their country. :)

    What fact would those be? Real audits are done through legal channels....the IRS informs by letter, not by a cryptic phone call.

    What a bullshit story.
