(Roey Hadar) The IRS spent $20 million on private debt collectors who ultimately collected just $6.7 million, according to a report from the Taxpayer Advocate, the agency’s in-house watchdog.
The report deems the Internal Revenue Service’s work with private debt collection to be one of the agency’s most serious problems because the debts assigned to private collectors largely targeted lower-income earners who owe federal taxes.
My Commentary: Taxes are the price we pay for the legalization of theft…
The corrupt institution known as the “IRS” spent $20 million in our tax dollars to hire private collection agencies to help claim “debts” owed to them, as ordered by Congress. Of course, this disproportionately effected low-income and below-poverty-level “earners,” just as the IRS predicted before implementing the legislature’s grand scheme. And, in the end, not only did the IRS only collect just a mere $6.7 million in debt, but they obviously breached the security of every single American “tax payer,” in the process, as the robo-call tax phone scams began shortly after this whole circus act started.
(Meagan Flynn) The driving infractions and fines had piled up on Robin Clearey, who stood before Magistrate Joe Licata after she was ticketed for driving without working taillights, a license or valid registration.
he had been through this many times before, she told the judge, and at that very moment she also had a criminal case pending for driving with an invalid license, for which she would stay in jail unless she paid a $3,500 bond. Licata warned her that, if she didn’t pay the fines for these tickets and renew her license after paying surcharges to the Department of Public Safety, “you’re gonna get arrested every time you get pulled over.”
That was nothing to her, Clearey responded — because she had already become trapped in a cycle of arrests.
“It’s nothing to me either,” Licata told her. “It’s job security.”
