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.

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.

It is the power right and responsibility of the people to abolish all these worthless unelected expansion of government agencies! They do not serve the people they only exist to serve themselves and the federal government! From the IRS, to DHS, TSA, EPA, FDA they all need to go away! The American people damn sure doesn't need these agencies!

I can find nothing in our laws and/or Constitution that authorizes the government to take a percentage of the money we earn to support ourselves and our families... As near as I can tell, the IRS is a private institution based in Pueto Rico... Taxes from other sources are legal, but taxing our incomes is apparently not...

Puerto Rico never paid taxes until recently. I know because I'm from there. Where you got that information I don't know but it's a total fabrication. Aside from that I signed the petition also.
