I am unaware of any statute under which anyone would have standing for such a suit. The foundation of any class action is a group of people who can present evidence of comoensable damage. I don't see that here.

The very first amendment to the Constitution of the US is the right to freedom of speech. By targeting politicians because of what they are saying publicly, the IRS is directly violating that God-given right. Since the IRS is a division of the US Government, they are violating the Constitution which requires a lawsuit to force them to stop. The damage here is; those politicians targeted by this government agency are prevented from seeking public office, lose valuable votes to earn an office,...

That my friend is compensible damage.

we are ALL damaged by their commandeering of our taxes to support political criminal overseas war profiteering activity....more than 40% of our garnered taxes goes to the corporate structure to profiteer war criminals and war profiteering corporations...a violation of religious freedom of so many who actually adhere to ethics, morals and various religions that all embrace PEACE and respect for the sanctity of life, not war profiteering... dissent from war profiteering is a Constitutional...

Sorry, I'm for higher taxes for those who *can* pay higher--we need *truly* income-based tax levels--those at or below poverty level should not be taxed regardless of whether they're on Social Security or otherwise. Those who are in the higher income brackets should be taxed more. This to me is a fact of altruism

You got your wish. The top 10% income earners pay 71% of all federal income taxes.

If everyone...and I mean everyone paid a flat tax rate of let's say...7% with no returns and no write-offs, it wouldn't take long before we had no national deficit. Hmmm, come to think of it, they could put that money into growing our economy!!!

The IRS is a private corporation, not a government agency. The IRS is a holding facility of our tax dollars that get funneled to the Federal Reserve, International Banks, and the British Crown. They have no legal or constitutional authority to abscond with our tax dollars and use them against the world funding the insane wars that they start.

Yes, I'm sure the millionaires and billionaires who will benefit the most from a flat tax will step up and start fixing our broken down infrastructure, build new roads a highways, and provide all the services our tax dollars are paying for.....you people live in a fantasy world....the problem isn't the IRS it's our Congress that is already bought and paid for. They make the laws which unfortunately, only benefit the rich and powerful.....stop voting for these idiots from the Twilight Zone if...

The petition should have more information on it than what is offered here. Without reasons for the petition the petition comes off as a childish pout. Demanding something be abolished, without supporting evidence is not something I will sign.

I agree with you on this Marissa, a petition without facts supporting it will be tossed to the side. It needs to be rewritten, with the laws (not codes, the IRS writes the codes to help congress with the laws, but just because they use the term code, doesn't mean it wasn't passed as a law by the congress) So this needs to be written with the laws that state & support what this petition is regarding specifically, while written differentiating the difference between which "codes" are simply...

Not saying I do not agree with the cause, but this is simply a sentence asking to abolish something put in place as a law, even if it's unconstitutionally passed as a law. Either way, I cannot sign a petition that will give out my information so I can be a target, without the laws supporting the cause being written in full and stated as supporting evidence as to itio.
