Method to impose financial charge or other levy upon a taxpayer by a government or functional equivalent
This episode of Sawbones is a little lighter, and what's lighter than pink? Nothing, especially when we're talking about Baker-Miller Pink, a hue theorized to calm people down, quell violence, and maybe even influence muscle strength. It wasn't the first color thought to have an effect on people's behavior, and it's EXACTLY as affective.Music: "Medicines" by The Taxpayers https://taxpayers.bandcamp.com/
Tax scams are as old as taxes themselves, so are you doing everything you can do to avoid them? In this episode of Retirement Starts Today, we'll explore what the IRS labels, ‘the dirty dozen' tax scams. You'll learn who is targeted by the various scams and then you'll discover what you should do to protect yourself from scammers. Make sure to stick around until the end of this episode to hear what you should avoid doing so that you don't fall prey to tax scammers. Outline of This Episode [1:24] The IRS has issued a warning to taxpayers [6:10] Protection for taxpayers [9:00] Dave wonders whether he should build his home with cash or use a mortgage Watch out for the ‘dirty dozen' Every year the IRS publishes its list of the 'dirty dozen' tax scams that citizens should be on the lookout for. This year's list comes directly from the IRS website in an article called Americans Urged to Watch Out for Tax Scams During the Pandemic. The article breaks up the 12 types of schemes into 4 categories based on who carries them out or whom they affect. The scams can be described as pandemic-related scams, personal information cons, ruses that focus on unsuspecting victims like seniors and immigrants, and schemes that persuade taxpayers into performing unscrupulous actions. The IRS urges everyone to stay aware of scams and scammers, especially during tax season. Economic impact payment theft This first category of the dirty dozen is related to the pandemic-related stimulus payments from the government which are still under threat from identity thieves. Look for these warning signs to spot identity theft scams. Any text messages, random incoming phone calls, or emails inquiring about bank account information or requesting recipients to click a link should be considered suspicious and deleted without opening. Remember that the IRS will never initiate contact with taxpayers by phone, email, text, or social media asking for a Social Security number or other personal or financial information related to economic impact payments. Be alert to mailbox theft by checking your mail frequently and reporting suspected mail losses to the post office. It is also important to remember that IRS.gov is the agency's official website for payments, refunds, or other tax information. Unemployment fraud leading to inaccurate taxpayer 1099-Gs Stay vigilant about receiving receipts of unemployment benefits that you did not actually receive since this could be a sign of identity theft. This is yet another way that identity thieves try to steal stimulus payments. Taxpayers should look out for a form called 1099-G which reports unemployment compensation that they did not receive. If you do receive this form, the IRS urges you to contact the appropriate state agency for a corrected form. If a corrected form cannot be obtained in time for taxpayers to file a timely tax return, they should complete their return claiming only the unemployment compensation and other income they actually received. How you can protect yourself This year the IRS made its IP PIN program available to all taxpayers. In the past, this program was only available to victims of identity theft. The IP PIN will help prevent fraudulent filings from identity thieves by serving as a key to unlock a taxpayer's tax account. In addition to the IP PIN, the IRS is further working to reduce fraud by strengthening tax software password protocols, asking for driver's license numbers as a way to prove identity, limiting the number of tax refunds going to bank accounts, and making personal information from tax transcripts. It is important to stay one step ahead of scammers so that you can protect yourself from fraud. Remember that the IRS will never ask you for your personal information via phone, text, or email.

While many may have complained about long call wait times and difficulty seeking IRS help in the past, the pandemic has exacerbated service problems such as these for the federal agency. As a result, today, it takes longer for claims to be addressed, and for taxpayers and practitioners alike, the process of reaching an IRS service representative seems nearly impossible. Who is to blame for the IRS's service issues, and what can be done to resolve them?On today's episode of the Taxgirl podcast, Kelly is joined by Bill Smith to talk about the IRS's difficulties that have emerged since the pandemic and what we can expect in the future. Bill is the Managing Director of the CBIZ MHM's National Tax Office in Washington DC. He has more than 40 years of experience in both the public and private sectors. In his current role, he consults nationally on a broad range of tax services, including foreign and domestic transactional tax planning for corporations, partnerships, LLCs, and individuals. Listen to Kelly and Bill discuss expectations for IRS processes returning to “normal” after the onset of COVID-19:What are Bill's thoughts on the IRS's current operating procedures for addressing taxpayer questions and concerns? What changes has he noticed since the onset of COVID-19? Are taxpayers aware of the modern-day challenges and delays involved in communicating with IRS representatives today, or are tax practitioners more alert to the difference in practices between now and pre-pandemic? How does this affect the relationships between tax practitioners and their clients? Bill speaks on what he describes as the" ripple effects" of the IRS's poor operating status. Taxpayers and tax practitioners can't get the IRS to respond to them promptly, and the IRS's use of only paper requests makes it easy for things to get lost or confused. These issues can affect not only taxpayers but their businesses, their relationships with professionals, the practices of tax professionals, and so on. How may the Taxpayer Advocate Service's office's recent announcement about not accepting certain cases impact businesses and citizens who would not receive their refunds on time? Bill believes that the IRS faced such significant hardships due to their adjustment to remote working. How was their situation different from any other company's, and to such a great extent? In what ways did the stimulus payments affect the IRS processes and contribute to their slow processing and production difficulties? Kelly and Bill discuss the IRS's technology as partially to blame for their operational issues. How could their technology be improved to resolve some of these problems? Could the controversy over the IRS's funding be contributing to its technology and operational issues? How would the proposed amendment to the Build Back Better Act affect the IRS's processes? If the Act's amendment gets passed, the responsibility will fall on the IRS to explain and implement it. Could this cause adverse effects, considering their current operational status? It is easier for the IRS to handle "lower hanging fruit" items such as smaller business audits rather than going after the more sophisticated tax issues. How would an amendment that caps the salary of the people who can be audited change this trend? Would the amendment impact the IRS's income, and if so, what would that mean for their future? What would Bill consider priorities, or areas of importance to taxpayers, if he were in charge of allocating additional funding to the IRS? Bill explains what areas of the IRS he believes should receive funding in order to restore normalcy to its processes. More about Kelly:Kelly is the creator and host of the Taxgirl podcast series.

Terri Goon, President of Liberty Toastmasters-North, shares a historical perspective stating that the colonists were ready for independence from Britain. Today we see that the more we “misbehave,” the more Fauci wants to control us. People must have the freedom to be self-responsible. Other club members’ comments include: quoting, “whenever any form of government becomes destructive the people have the right to form a new government;” there are twenty-seven different issues based on government force and government overreach, just what we are seeing today; the decision making process is hidden and PBIs create legislation, like the “Build Back Badder” Act, hidden with paybacks and tyranny; we must know and carry the founding documents with us and talk about them with others; the nature and morality of the founding documents and; understand that inaction by us today may be an embarassment to our great grandchildren. Rick concludes the conversation with the final words of the Declaration, that we pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor. Karen Levine, award winning realtor with REMAX/Alliance and show sponsor, agrees with all freedom comments. Single family housing development needs liberation from PBIs (Politicians, Bureaucrats and Interested Parties) current policies. Home ownership is a property right and it is a right we must protect.

A housing trust says taxpayers should feel like their money's been wasted. The Auditor-General has criticised the Social Development Ministry renting private properties for emergency housing. 37-million dollars went to Auckland private landlords and property managers between November 2017 and June 2020. The Ministry's stopped using them, after concerns about the impact on the private market. Monte Cecilia Trust chief executive Bernie Smith told Heather du Plessis-Allan they made a complaint about it. “They never came to us and to other transitional housing providers that could've provided homes at half or a third of the cost.” LISTEN ABOVE

NCLA Argues Before First Circuit in Cryptocurrency Lawsuit Against IRS NCLA presented oral argument this week in the cryptocurrency lawsuit against the IRS, James Harper v. Charles P. Rettig, et al. NCLA filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit, arguing that IRS took Mr. Harper's data without reasonable suspicion and without a judicial warrant. NCLA contends IRS violated his Fourth and Fifth Amendment constitutional rights by obtaining his private financial information from virtual-currency exchanges without following statutory limitations on its power to issue subpoenas. In August 2019, James Harper received a letter from the IRS accusing him of not having “properly reported” his “transactions involving virtual currency.” A press release followed shortly thereafter stating, “Taxpayers should take these letters very seriously” and “correct past errors.” Mr. Harper, one of more than 10,000 cryptocurrency holders who received such a letter, filed a lawsuit challenging IRS's questionable information-gathering practices.

Oh, and we're joined by a special guest whose voice you'll be hearing more often on the show! A note: On the show today, we read part of a response from Benjamin Dunning from Denver Homeless Out Loud, regarding the Denver Gazette's editorial. Here's the full version of the statement he sent to us: “Peoples ignorance when it comes to homelessness is amazing as evidenced by the editorial 'Denver's drifters glamp on taxpayers' tab.' from the Denver Gazette. The article has no declared author. We take this as evidence of them being unable to accept responsibility or accountability. The shaming sentiment they put on our homeless communities with their coined word is disrespectful. Their stupidity and lack of insight is evidenced by statements like “It's bad for the unfortunate soul who chooses that life as well as for the neighbor who has to put up with it.” No one, and I mean no one chooses to be homeless. To sit behind a locked door and call the police on folks stuck in homelessland, over and over and over only makes things worse. 70% of calls to the STAR program are for unwanted persons and not for emergencies. Apparently there is a person who alone has called emergency services 500 times. It is sicking the disrespect we show our homeless communities. And this anonymous author is no different. The SOS camps do a great job offering help with dignity and respect. So when folks are offered some help with dignity, are we to shame them as grifters? Makes you wonder what kind of grift this author is manufacturing. Here is a bit of what enduring homelessland actually looks like. Glamping my A**- Being chased from street to street by city officials week after week, month after month. No rest, never sleeping with both eyes closed. Asking for housing and being told there is none. Asking where you could go and being told an “overcrowded emergency shelter during a pandemic”. Not a safe place at all. How about housing? Efforts to address homelessness should emphasize housing. Housing ends homelessness. Shelters do not work, they never have. Is the anonymous author willing to accept housing vouchers at their properties? Trust me the anonymous author owns property. (remember the grift they were on we mentioned earlier) Many folks on the streets have housing vouchers that private landlords refuse to accept. Making a problem even worse. People who have housing being denied the right to access the housing they have been granted. Only then to be shamed by Karen's excessively calling the police on them. But then that is what stupid people do. Make their problems worse and then blame it on someone else.” And here's the Denver Gazette's “Denver Drifters Glamp on Taxpayer's Tab” Find Peyton Garcia's best of local gift guides in today's newsletter: https://denver.citycast.fm/newsletter/ Tell us what you thought of the Denver Gazette piece on Twitter: @CityCastDenver Learn more about your ad choices.

Kim and Producer Steve begin the show discussing government induced inflation, the silent thief very visible at the gas pump. Sunday's America's Veteran's Stories will feature Marine Veteran Marty Letellier who served in the Korean War and fought at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, November 27-December 13, 1940.

A third show is broadcast at 10pm on Saturday featuring Marine Vietnam War Veteran Bear Owen. Affordable, reliable, efficient and abundant energy empowers everyday Americans to thrive and prosper. PBIs, (Politicians, Bureaucrats and Interested Parties ) are manipulating and increasing the price of fuel through rules and regulations. The Clinton Foundation donations are reduced to a trickle as donors can no longer buy political influence. The 16th Amendment began taxing income in the United States. The right to deduct qualified expenses gives influence and power to wealthy individuals. Kim suggests a total tax (Federal, State, County, Municipal, Property, etc.) of 10% so that we will reclaim the power of the people to decide they spend their money instead of PBIs forcing higher taxes to fund federal agencies and bureaucrats. Kim and Producer Steve continue their review of current issues. Colorado Springs Districts 11 and 20 reverse mask mandates, one key issue they campaigned on. Biden's administration is dealt another blow as a judge blocks nationwide mandatory vaccinations for federal contractors. This is one of many examples where the American Idea and the judicial system are being tested. The World Health Organization states that there is no evidence that booster shots will give greater COVID protection to individuals. Xcel Energy used political influence (both sides of the aisle) to implement rules and regulations to shut down Colorado's coal industry. PBIs are using the same template to destroy Colorado's oil and gas industry. FDA says it will take 55 years to release the Pfizer COVID-19/Wuhan-China virus documents. A recent article examines the reality of mask mandates and the tyrannical use of power. Sen. Bennett receives a donation from a key influencer with ties to Russia and the pipeline Nord Stream 2. Is Bennett working for lobbyists or his constituents? Kim voices support for Adam Andrzeyewski with Open the Books. He has a petition that will require Congressional members to sign an affidavit that they have read a bill before voting on it. The state of Colorado reports they have about $73 million in fraudulent unemployment claims. Taxpayers' money is being used to for COVID-19 contact tracing.
In today's podcast, we talk about how the federal government can utilize data to address the fiscal pressures it has encountered and how such data can be used to make better decisions surrounding what actions to take despite changes in leadership and administration over the last few years.For those that find data to be too abstract, data is simply information. Traci talks about howa specific framework and identified process used by The Mark helps to provide guidance with reference to how data or information is used and can help adapt to each federal agency's needs to make decision-making and leadership easier.
Fuck, sorry for the wait. Long story, but weren't able to touch up the audio on this one without delaying it another week, so if the sound quality is worse for this one, that's why. That said, if you don't notice a difference, let us know, oh my god, that would save us so much time and money Send your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org patreon: lifeintheworldtocome discord: discord.gg/QMWMGPN instagram: @lifeintheworldtocome intro/outro music: "We Are The Hellhounds" by The Taxpayers
Not content with the multi-billion-dollar bailout of pensions included in the American Rescue Plan passed earlier this year, Democratic Socialists are now demanding that taxpayers rescue the pension plans of their union buddies.
