IRS to increase "pre-crime" enforcement

Did you ever see Minority Report? It's one of Steven Spielberg's often forgotten about movies based on the short story by Philip K. Dick. In the movie, pre-couch Tom Cruise plays a police officer in the year 2054 who works for the highly specialized 'pre-crime' division.

Using a bizarre array of technology and metaphysics, the pre-crime division sees into the future and stops criminals in their tracks, arresting them before they commit a crime... sometimes before they even think about committing a crime.

This very elaborate and morally ambiguous law enforcement system is predicated on the government determining what your actions and intentions will be, often before you do. It's not all science fiction.

A number of politicians and bureaucrats in Washington D.C. are seeking to step up the Internal Revenue Service's powers, and technology, to essentially audit taxpayers before returns are even filed.


In remarks to the National Press Club last week, an IRS spokesman unveiled the agency's vision for the "look forward" model in which most of the pertinent reporting information for the average taxpayer (W2, 1099, mortgage interest etc.) would be submitted to the IRS well in advance of the individual deadline.

After a massive upgrade in technology, the IRS would be able to pre-calculate what it expects to receive in taxes and instantly reject any return that doesn't comply with its determination

They profile now, in order to figure out who to audit.

They wouldn't have to audit. The'd just decide you hadn't paid enough based on their calculations and reject your return. I'm thinking it'd be a convenient way for the gov to claim a balanced budget based on expected revenue, regardless of whether it's reality or not.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

Quote:"Keep it simple. When you have a tax code that’s so complex it has given rise to a multi-billion dollar preparation industry, you have a problem. There are dozens of different forms at the IRS, and over 20 versions for the 1099 alone! This is a system that is prone to massive flaws and a great deal of contradiction.

Hong Kong is a great example of a simple system. Taxes are levied at a flat rate of 15% based on the “territorial principal” that only income derived from Hong Kong is taxed. There is no capital gains tax, no VAT, no estate tax, etc. And yet, the biggest problem the Hong Kong government faces regarding taxes is how to give away their massive surplus."

Excellent workable ideas, of course the problem is the government takes things that are bad to begin with and proceeds to really ğck things up. Thats the way it operates, Hong Kong was a great example of how to handle it, just as Canada's socialized medicine would have been a great example to base health care on.

Neither will happen because they do not represent the will of corporations who finance the politicians who were supposed to represent us. bored.gif

I wish people would get angry at the US system, it's blackmail at it's worst. "Your money or your life" and they mean it.
