NEW YORK (Reuters) - A New York man was temporarily barred on Friday from preparing income tax returns for others because he has been including bogus tax credits such as reparations for African-American slavery and segregation.
The Manhattan U.S. attorney's office said it obtained a restraining order against Kevin Hardy of Mount Vernon that immediately barred him from working as a tax preparer until a full hearing can be held.
Prosecutors said that the Internal Revenue Code does not provide any such slavery reparations tax credit and that Hardy repeatedly prepared returns for others making such claims.
(Denny Crane: "Sometimes you can only look for answers from God and failing that... and Fox News".)
Of course, America declared it's independence from Britain in part based on "no taxation without representation", and now we have Congress and far higher taxes than Britain ever levied on us, but that's beside the point.:)
Isn't this kind of bad timing? He's probably done all the returns he's going to do this year. Unless it was a deliberate plan to let him file a bunch of illegal returns and then nail him for it (which is a bit rough on the suckers who fall for his scheme...)
The whack jobs of the left...funny as funny can be.
I am surprised they are only issuing a "restraining" order. I know if I tried this stuff, they would throw my butt in jail. Of course, I'm not a member of a protected minority group.
My uncle,particularly,spoke of this often.He was about 15 years older than my Dad.
Now,I'll just wait and see....particularly for the reaction of the Massachusetts Dept of Revenue,which is in the firm grip of the finest progressives that this nation has.
