PUBLIC ANNOUNCEMENT FROM:CLT'S 2 ½ PAC500 Mendon Rd. Unit 125 Attleboro, MA 02703 508-915-3665  BEATY WINS TAXPAYERS' ENDORSEMENT  Ronald R. Beaty, Jr. has won the endorsement of CLT's 2 ½ Political Action Committee in his election bid for State Senator from the Cape & Islands District.  CLT'S 2 ½ PAC, the political arm of Citizens for Limited Taxation, was originally created to support candidates who would defend Proposition 2 ½ in the State Legislature.  It now endorses candidates who support taxpayers on a variety of issues, and uses the CLT Legislative rating to identify pro-taxpayer legislators.  Francis J. Faulkner, executive director of the PAC, said the group endorsed Beaty based on his strong support for tax limitation "We need to put people like Ron Beaty in the State Senate to continue the fight for the income tax rollback and to block any attempt to impose new taxes.  Ron has taken the taxpayer protection pledge.  This pledge asks candidates to ‘oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes'.Signing the pledge means he is serious about not raising taxes and will focus instead on better management of state revenues." In contrast, his opponent Senator Daniel Wolf received a lowly 04% on CLT's most recent taxpayer rating.  In serving the best interests of the taxpayers and the economy, we urge the voters of the Cape & Islands District to elect Ronald R. Beaty, Jr.. to the State Senate on November 4th.

The Tea Party isn’t the only group of Americans being targeted by the IRS.  Listed below are 52 individuals who were convicted or charged by the Department of Justice for preparing fraudulent tax returns.  I believe the IRS is guilty of targeting black and Hispanic tax preparers while turning a blind eye to corporate giants.  My research showed that H&R Block didn’t have a single conviction even though they employ 100,000 tax preparers.

DOJ Failed to Investigate IRS Fraud Charges

Last December I filed fraud charges against the Whistleblower Office for failing to investigate multi-million tax preparer fraud.  The Department of Justice refused to even acknowledge my complaint.  I finally asked Senator Flake to intervene on my behalf after 8 months.  In just days I received a letter from the DOJ informing me that they lacked jurisdiction to investigate violations of federal tax laws.  The DOJ said the decision to investigate tax fraud is vested solely with the IRS.


IRS Handpicks Tax Preparers to Face DOJ Conviction

The DOJ prosecuted 60+ tax preparers during the last 12 months. The DOJ gets their leads from the IRS. This means that the IRS handpicks tax preparers who face a DOJ conviction rate of 94%.  If the IRS is going to target small businessman for millions in fraud, then doesn’t the government have a fiduciary duty to taxpayers to hold large corporations accountable for causing the US Treasury to lose billions?


Racial Profiling Violates Civil Liberties

In 1996 the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in U.S. v Armstrong that racial profiling is constitutional in the absence of data that similarly situated defendants of another race were disparately treated.  I’ve asked Senator Rubio and Congressman Issa to subpoena the IRS and demand all records regarding selection protocal that results in DOJ convictions.  Congress needs to identify what criteria the IRS utilized in selecting tax preparers for DOJ prosecution.


Tea Party Scandal is Small Potatoes Compared to IRS Racial Profiling

The news media is quick to criticize and toss Tea Party members under the bus.  Every American should embrace the fact that a massive IRS corruption was uncovered. The IRS was created to oversee tax collection and compliance.  However, the IRS has morphed into a powerful agency that lacks transparency, honesty and integrity.  They terrorize taxpayers of lower economic means who simply don’t have the money to hire a CPA or tax attorney to represent them from IRS mayhem.  My research shows over 75% of the tax preparers the IRS handed over to the DOJ for convictions were minorities. 


The bottom line is simple, if the Internal Revenue Service is going prosecute black and Hispanic tax preparers who’ve engaged in tax fraud, than they have a duty to prosecute white tax preparers committing tax fraud based on professional shortcomings instead of race.     


If Senator Rubio and Congressman Issa find that the IRS is guilty of profiling minorities then it’s time the Internal Revenue Service faces the same fate the government bestowed upon Arthur Andersen for the Enron debacle.  I’ve been a CPA over 30 years and I watched in amazement as 100,000 outstanding Arthur Andersen professionals lost their jobs as the result of a few bad apples.  In contrast, having closely worked with multiple layers of the IRS in the last three years, I will attest that the IRS has cases of bad apples sitting on pallets that would require multiple railroad cars to move. I believe it’s time for the IRS to go by the wayside just like vinyl records and VHS recorders. The best use for the IRS is to become an answer to a trivial pursuit question.
