Don’t Turn Over Reader List To IRS Rules Judge Hall

By Jeffrey Eisenberg
September 4th, 2007

Who is Watching Big Brother?Can the IRS obtain information about what you read on a website even if you have done nothing wrong?

I didn’t think it was possible until I read “Order on Tax Evasion Site Blocked” in the NY Times:

On Friday, Judge Peter W. Hall temporarily blocked the portion of the order requiring Mr. Schulz to turn over to the government the names and identifying details of people who had obtained information at the Web site on how to stop federal tax from being withheld from their paychecks.

My position is clear, I’m a card carrying member of the ACLU. Do you think the IRS should be able to get that list?

  1. NO. Replace Google with this website and George Orwell’s 1984 becomes too close to reality for comfort.

  2. let’s go to a VAT system and make the entire IRS plus all the effort that goes into filing taxes just go away.

  3. No, the IRS should not be able to obtain this list. These people have not committed any crime…yet.
