High-Income Taxpayers Now Confronted At Home By IRS Agents

<span property="schema:name" class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">High-Income Taxpayers Now Confronted At Home By IRS Agents </span>

<div property="schema:text" class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>The IRS <a href="https://www.irs.gov/newsroom/irs-increases-visits-to-high-income-taxpayers-who-havent-filed-tax-returns">announced</a> Wednesday that it would increase at-home visitations to high-income taxpayers who haven't filed tax returns on time. </p>

<p>Remember when the IRS under the <a href="https://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-10-28/obamas-irs-admits-specifically-targeting-tea-party-conservatives">Obama administration targeted</a> conservative groups? Now it appears this anti-wealth attitude extends to anyone earning over $100,000 that hasn't filed a return since 2018 or prior years. </p>

<p>During an at-home visit, IRS agents will inform the non-compliant taxpayer how to file returns and show them a pathway of regaining compliant status. </p>

<p><em>Uncle Sam wants his goddamn money! </em></p>

<p>"The IRS is committed to fairness in the tax system, and we want to remind people across all income categories that they need to file their taxes," said Paul Mamo, Director of Collection Operations, Small Business/Self Employed Division. "These visits focusing on high-income taxpayers will be taking place across the country."</p>

<p>Visitations have already started this month and will continue through March for severe cases of high-income taxpayers not filing. </p>

<p>In the last year, the agency started aggressively <a href="https://www.zerohedge.com/personal-finance/irs-admits-targeting-poor-because-its-easier-and-cheaper-auditing-wealthy">targeting</a> low-income families who neglected to pay their taxes. These struggling folks in the "greatest economy ever" are <a href="https://www.zerohedge.com/economics/cracks-us-households-finances">barely surviving</a> on depressed wages, insurmountable debts, and soaring housing and healthcare inflation, have no money left over to pay taxes. </p>

<p>If you're rich or poor and haven't paid your taxes in the last several years, watch out because Big Brother is now dispatching its agents to hunt you down. </p>

<p>And in case an agent confronts a non-compliant taxpayer – they will offer several options if the tax bill cannot be paid in full, such as a payment plan. But if a non-compliant taxpayer declines to pay, the IRS will inform the individual that they will pursue them in court. </p>

<p><em>Land of the free? Not when it comes to debt...</em></p>

<p>And here's the most bizarre move the IRS made before they launched a massive campaign across the country to confront rich and poor non-compliant taxpayers. The agency bought 5,000 guns, some automatic weapons, and 5 million rounds of ammunition. </p>

<p>Seriously, <a href="http://freebeacon.com/issues/now-bureaucrats-guns-u-s-marines/">why do IRS agents need AR-15 rifles</a>?  To collect all the money that is owed, of course! </p>
