The long history of IRS abuses

In this Future of Freedom piece, James Bovard examines the long history of abuse of power by the IRS. Ever since the 1920s, it has been used (sometimes on its own initiative) to attack people and organizations that aren’t on board with the big government/progressive agenda.

Imagine how much better off the nation would be if we had never adopted the federal income tax and its nasty bunch of enforcers. The federal government wouldn’t be brimming with loot for the politicians to squander, taxpayers wouldn’t have to waste great amounts of time and money on tax preparation, and nobody would have to fear this agency.
