In today’s edition of The Heartland Daily Podcast, we listen in as research fellow Jesse Hathaway joins host Tom Zawistowski to talk about IRS civil forfeiture laws on Tea Party Talk.
According to a new report by the Institute for Justice (IJ), the IRS has been using federal civil asset forfeiture laws to seize millions of dollars from innocent small business owners and citizens. The IJ report, Hathaway says, documents the IRS’ presumption of the guilt of American citizens, as federal agents “seize first, ask questions later,” forcing citizens to prove that they have not committed the crimes of which they were accused… after the IRS seized their assets.
