    The reckoning for the Clintons I have dreamed of for a quarter of a century finally approaches with whistleblowing and documents about the slush fund known as the Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton Foundation. The ability of the Clintons to blow off charges of criminality will be crippled by the latest evidence revealed to be in the hands of prosecutors. With the former first couple humiliated by their inability to draw a decent crowd anymore, and plenty of other Democrats anxious to move on and put this embarrassment behind them, it is starting to look like karma finally is...

    Three people have come forward with hundreds of pages of evidence of potential wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation, including misappropriation of funds and allegations of quid-pro-quo promises made to donors during Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, Rep. Mark Meadows, R-N.C., told Fox News on Thursday. Meadows, the leader of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, is also the chairman of the House Oversight Subcommittee on Government Operations. The panel is set to hold an investigative hearing next week on the status of the Foundation case. U.S. Attorney John Huber was tasked to investigate the foundation last year by then-Attorney...

    The whistleblower submission cited many of the same concerns as the internal legal reviews, but also alleged that evidence from foreign governments showed that some charity transactions were commercial in nature and therefore should have been taxed. The evidence amassed by the private investigators should give Congress plenty to explore at its hearing next week, and put the Trump Justice Department on the spot to answer what it has done to address concerns that the foundation’s lawyers raised and the private investigators uncovered. Quid pro quo donations, a culture of noncompliance, travel abuses and commingling of personal with charitable business...

The campaign said in a statement that Abrams deferred her tax payments in 2015 and 2016 because she was helping to pay her family’s expenses and that she...

    Wesley Snipes has been ordered to pay back taxes despite trying hard to convince the Internal Revenue Service that he doesn't have the funds, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The outlet reported Thursday that the IRS originally attempted to collect $23.5 million from the actor, to which he responded with an offer-in-compromise (OIC) for $850,000, a mechanism that would have let him settle his debt and have the tax lien against his home withdrawn. But the IRS rejected the offer, which prompted Snipes to file a petition to overturn the decision. On Thursday, however, tax court Judge Kathleen Kerrigan delivered...

    Democratic allies gathered downtown Saturday for Chicago’s latest Women’s March, with organizers pushing for participants to help get out the vote ahead of next month’s midterm elections. Organized as a nonprofit — and not specifically endorsing candidates — the group Women’s March Chicago is bankrolled by Democrats and Democratic supporters. Major donors include the Chicago Federation of Labor and Democratic governor candidate J.B. Pritzker’s campaign. Several thousand took part in Saturday’s march and rally, which was the third Women’s March through Chicago. It was a far cry from the roughly 250,000 who marched through the city shortly after President Donald...

    More than three years ago, Sen. Elizabeth Warren told the Internal Revenue Service that she had donated $50,000 in used clothing and "household items" to local thrift stores in 2014. Fifty grand worth of clothes! Donated! In one year. That was the fake Indian’s story and she was sticking to it - until late yesterday afternoon, after we inquired about her rather, uh, profligate spending habits. Suddenly, the fake Indian's story changed. The totals, her flack said, were "entry errors." Hey, Senator, glad I could be of service, in helping you correct your false filing. (And I assume the returns,...

    An emerging coalition of New York municipalities is preparing to challenge proposed Internal Revenue Service regulations that clouded the ability of cities and towns to set up funds that allow residents to pay their local taxes as charitable contributions. The group of municipalities—which includes Westchester County—will file public comments with the IRS and is considering a lawsuit, according to Assemblywoman Amy Paulin, a Democrat who lives in Scarsdale. The new federal tax code signed into law by President Trump in December put a $10,000 cap on state and local tax deductions, a change that has hurt some residents in New...

    In the middle of directing the difficult task of transferring the historically important records of the Obama administration into the National Archives, the archivist in charge, David Ferriero, ran into a serious problem: A lot of key records are missing. A first-rate librarian, Ferriero has been driving a much-needed digital overhaul and expansion of the National Archives over the nine years of his appointment. This will greatly improve the ability of digital search locally and remotely, as well as accessing the files themselves. To support this effort, in 2014 President Obama signed the Presidential and Federal Records Act Amendments. For...

    Rettig will take over from Trump Treasury official David Kautter, who has been running the IRS on an interim basis since the departure last fall of John Koskinen, an Obama appointee who was despised by Republicans. In confirmation hearings, Rettig said that his overriding goal would be to restore confidence in the IRS, which has for years been the objection of conservative suspicion and faced significant budget cuts. Rettig will be tasked with implementing the new tax law passed by Republicans and signed into law by Trump in December. The IRS was afforded a modest increase in funding this spring...

    As corruption continues at the DoJ/FBI, it is important to know the name of an operative who is working behind the scenes in a powerful position. That person is Henry Kerner. Former McCain staffer, Henry Kerner, a deep state bureaucrat, has oversight over whistleblowers and internal probes. This is no ordinary staffer. This man hates conservatives. Senator John McCain’s Staff Director Henry Kerner urged the IRS’ Steve Miller and Lois Lerner to target the tea party and any conservative groups until its “financially ruinous”. Henry Kerner is now in charge of all internal investigations in the government. In his past...

    Despite simplification measures passed in last year’s Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the American tax code remains bloated. Decades of explosive growth in the tax code have overburdened taxpayers when filing season comes around. And while increasing the standard deduction and cutting the Alternative Minimum Tax, as TCJA did, will decrease the compliance burden on many Americans, much work remains to be done.A new proposal from three legal scholars in Politico, however, neglects to address the fundamental problem of a convoluted tax code when it comes to making tax filing easier. The authors propose that the IRS pre-fill everyone’s tax forms...
