If they allow ANYBODY who owes money to change the amount they pay (which happens all the time) IT IS ILLEGAL!!!!! The politicians in office are for themselves. They are supposed to "SERVE" not take. Very few people in politics are fair. That is not how this was designed to be way back when. But greed has taken over and THEY ALL NEED TO GO.

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!!!

Now is maybe the last time we're ever going to have to get to get rid of these bastards; once and for all. We can't just talk about it...we need to turn up the heat. It's not going to be easy. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, could champion the cause. At least they are the only two in government today that I semi-trust.

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...

It does kind of seem that they are worthless and just waste money for their own personal benefit. Like honky tonk line dancing classes. I mean we are 1.7 Trillion in debt to China and the economy still is not that great, so something is out of balance. God bless

Yea, a government that only exist to serve itself! Both parties are utterly corrupt! They pass laws that are in their personal interest and then exempt themselves and their constituents from those laws! That's a two party dictatorship that is out of control!
