"What IF" - Freedom Shenanigan #12

Paperwork Pile Up?

Okay, so now according to the TIGTA the FEDGOV is whining that too many people are filing "Tax returns" who don't need to. Oh Boo hoo! Scare the liberty out of people for years with overbearing enforcement, illegal liens, armed CPAs, FEDGOV sponsored propaganda and then bellyache about the mindless dumbed down sheeple who knee-jerk file every year. Typical braindead bureauRat mentality. Next thing they'll do is impose a processing fine (fee) for un-needed filings.

Well, before that happens what would be the result of a few million more doing what they don't want?

Maybe a break down of the offices overwhelmed with needless paperwork?

Awe, that would be just terrible!

Now IF I were to consider this I would use gloves, NOT lick the stamps or envelopes, and probably use the social security number and name of a dead person and not mail it from around my locality, or use the SS number of someone who has brazenly given it out over the internet with a different name, that is IF I were to do it which I don't recommend because IRS is run by rat-bastard traitors to liberty who enjoy enforcing a law that they can't point to.
However, IF I were I might consider it to be a
Freedom Shenanigan in the spirit of the
Sons of Liberty.
8 Million File Unnecessary Tax Returns

More than 8 million people file tax returns each year who don’t need to do so, imposing heavy costs on the Internal Revenue Service, according to a new report from a Treasury Department watchdog.

The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration looked at the steps the IRS has been taking to reduce the number of tax returns filed by individuals whose wages are too low to meet the filing threshold. TIGTA found that taxpayers collectively spent an average of $390 million and 75 million hours per year preparing and filing unnecessary tax returns. The IRS, for its part, spent an average of $11 million each year to process the unnecessary returns.

A major part of the expense comes from the 60 percent of the unnecessary tax returns filed on paper, which cost the IRS more to process than electronically filed returns. Most of the taxpayers who file the unnecessary returns qualify for the IRS Free File Program, which would allow them to file their returns electronically for free.

An earlier TIGTA report recommended that the IRS should expand the marketing of the Free File Program by sending materials to eligible taxpayers who have filed paper returns. TIGTA suggested that the IRS do more to educate taxpayers who no longer need to file tax returns, but stopped short of making a firm recommendation. It was concerned about the potential negative consequences of advising the wrong taxpayers to claim exemption from withholding.
