    Washington, D.C. – Every year, people fall prey to tax scams. The IRS wants you to be safe and informed – and not become a victim.

    “Some people are victimized by tax scams, while some get involved after being lured in by false promises of big money,” said IRS spokesman Dan Boone.

    Taxpayers who get involved in illegal tax scams can lose their money, or face stiff penalties, interest and even criminal prosecution. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

    Here are some highlights from the 2014 update of IRS’s annual “Dirty Dozen” list of tax scams.

    Identity theft. Tax fraud using identity theft tops this year’s Dirty Dozen list. In many cases, an identity thief uses a taxpayer’s identity to illegally file a tax return and claim a refund. For the 2014 filing season, the IRS has expanded efforts to better protect taxpayers and help victims. Find more information on the identity protection page on www.IRS.gov.

    Pervasive telephone scams. The IRS has seen an increase in local phone scams across the country. Callers pretend to be from the IRS in hopes of stealing money or identities from victims. If you get a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS – and you know you owe taxes or think you might owe taxes, call the IRS at 1.800.829.1040. If you get a call from someone claiming to be from the IRS and know you don’t owe taxes or have no reason to think that you owe taxes, then call and report the incident to the Treasury Inspector General...

    Selvfølgelig, er det om penger.

    Uansett problemet, argumentet, melodrama, PowerPoint-presentasjoner, media tilgjengelighet (spesielt det) mudslinging, diagrammer og grafer, statistikk, empati, regn, finger-vogn, den oppgitt sukk, øyenbryn knaser, agn og slå, den politiske manøvreringen eller foto op "¦ på slutten av dagen, det er om penger.

    Og som tydelig, bør ikke være banebrytende nyheter.

    Neppe nyheter på alt, å fortelle sannheten. Det er så klar som den nest eldste gyldne regel: de som har gull, styre.

    Ta vår dekke Oregon. vær så snill.

    Vår stat representant (som kjører for guvernør) og våre amerikanske representant (som leder av nasjonale komiteen som får medlemmer av partiet hans valgt eller gjenvalgt til huset) ber om en etterforskning Statens $300 millioner helse exchange for "potensielle avfallet, svindel og misbruk.

    Stikkordet det er "muligheter". Ikke "faktisk" avfallet, svindel og misbruk, fordi de ikke har vist seg som ennå. Men vi er forledet til å tro av guvernøren fra andre politiske partiet har hensikt inkompetent utbyggingen av vår versjon av helsevesenet promotert av POTUS av andre politiske partiet.

    Uansett hva du tror dekke Oregon, er det nesten sikkert at nettstedet har krasjet og brant nesten like ille som flere amerikanske favoritter i OL.
