Hey ... Mr. Romney ... I've been wondering ...
Are you a felon?
Anything occur , say in 2009 you'd care to share?
In 2009, the Internal Revenue Service got aggressive with rich "taxpayers" regarding offshore accounts enabling them to avoid paying their fair share of Federal taxes! A deadline was issued for these tax evaders regarding Swiss et al bank accounts or face prosecution and disclosure of their names.
So much for the myth that Swiss banks would never divulge the names of American account owners.
The IRS offered amnesty and a promise not to prosecute provided the tax dodgers came forward by a designated deadline, paid the taxes due and commensurate penalties.
The lies told by Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan are unconscionable and numerous ... (be happy to compile a list if challenged); but this tax thing should be easy to settle.
Mr. Romney ... are you one of those 4,000 tax felons? Did you receive amnesty from the IRS? Are you a felon?
_____— Screw you ... I have a hater-base that doesn't give a @!$%# about issues.
Taxpayers convicted of tax fraud may be sentenced to prison. That determination depends primarily on the severity of the tax fraud as well as the strength of the evidence. When deciding whether or not to prosecute a fraud case, the IRS will consider whether or not the evidence clearly proves that it was the taxpayer's intent to defraud the government. IRS statutes 26 and 18 do not recommend prison sentences in excess of three to five years behind bars.
What Is Tax Evasion?
Tax evasion is a felony under the laws of almost every jurisdiction in the world because it is considered a threat to the government's ability to fund its own operations. Tax evasion can carry both civil and criminal penalties, which can be dangerous because tax rules can be quite complex and innocent mistakes can be costly for taxpayers. Fortunately, in the U.S., criminal intent must be shown in order to convict a defendant of tax evasion. This article provides a general overview of the subject from the perspective of U.S. federal law.
