SAN DIEGO, CA – (OPEN DATE)
The IRS Innocence Project announced today it has filed with the IRS its formal Application (IRS Form 1023) and we have begun the formal process of securing our Non-Profit Corporation status under Section 501(c)(3) and we are now in the process of registering with the California State Attorney General’s office.
We are now in the process of forming our Governing Board, our Executive Board, and appointing Officers for the organization so we can enter 2019 with a clear path and focus to our initiatives and fund raising efforts.
The Mission of the IRS Innocence Project is to promote a more transparent IRS, assist in providing aggressive representation to ensure a “fair administration of tax laws” is possible, educate the taxpaying public, specifically business owners and tax professional alike in their “Administrative Due Process Rights”, and to support legal actions on behalf of taxpayers in securing full disclosure under the FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT in holding the IRS accountable for its actions and full and transparent disclosure.
The IRS Innocence Project exists to educate the public about the operations and activities of government, as well as to increase public understanding about the importance of ethics and the rule of law in government.
The public’s right to know how the government goes about its official duties is a fundamental principal of a free society. No case made more
clear this guiding principal than that of New York Times Co. v. United States, 403 U.S. 713,
The IRS Innocence Project’s principal aim is two-fold; (1) shed an open light on the government’s activity in conducting investigations to ensure fundamental due process is respected; and (2) report those findings where the government has failed to respect and abide by due
Tax Professionals who have been subject to Section 6694 Penalty Cases
Business Owners who have lost an IRS Audit or Appeal
Document taxpayer complaints of IRS abuses and seek formal investigations by TIGTA.
(TIGTA is Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration)
Educate the taxpaying public and tax professionals on “Administrative Due Process” rights, Foreign Financial Reporting Requirements, and assist in greater public awareness of the Taxpayer Bill of Rights
We absolutely support a respect of our tax laws and a respect for the difficult job the IRS has to enforce these laws, it is also true that a few IRS officials exceed their legal authority and take actions against taxpayers and tax professionals that clearly violate constitutional rights, administrative due process rights, and in some cases actions that are clearly illegal and it is time that an organization come forward to step in and assist to protect US taxpayers of all types against the abuses of an agency that at times seems to act above the law.
In recent years for example the IRS has virtually turned Section 6694 (Preparer Penalty) on its head and has turned it into a revenue source with very little or no public disclosure. Revenue Officers and Revenue Agents can trigger an investigation with very little effort required and literally destroy a tax professional who has very little ability to defend themselves. In addition, business owners can face the overwhelming power of the IRS and lose an audit not knowing they have other options available. Many taxpayers and tax professionals do not speak up simply out of FEAR the IRS will retaliate and that IS NOT the AMERICA I grew up in!
