Update:12/6/13: via Breitbart
I (Bretibart;s Debra Heine) spoke with C. Steven Tucker on the phone about his case. He told me that two agents from the Treasury Inspector General Chicago field office visited his home, this morning, after an unannounced visit to his business office which has been closed since 2010. A treasury agent called his home yesterday afternoon, and they agreed to meet this morning to talk about “resolving the problem.”
Tucker has until the December 26 [the day after Christmas?] to pay a fine of $4,000 for the year 2003 and $2,000 from the year 2010, though he maintains that his tax record is clean and he shouldn’t owe them anything.
When his lawyer asked the agents if they really believed that the audits were a coincidence, especially in light of the IRS’s recent history of targeting conservative groups, they replied that they couldn’t comment.
A large number of conservative blogs have covered this story, but so far no MSM outlets – including Fox News have picked up on it.
Do you believe in coincidences? A cancer victim, who appeared on The Kelly File to tell his tragic story about losing his health insurance because of the new ObamaCare law, has been told he will be audited by the IRS. The insurance adjustor who helped him has learned he too will be audited.
A cancer victim named Bill Elliot, an Obama voter, appeared on The Kelly File on November 7th to talk about his healthcare situation after he was dropped from his health insurance as a result of The Affordable Care Act – ObamaCare.
Mr. Elliot lost his insurance because he is high-risk. He loved his insurance and his doctor, they paid for ‘pretty much everything.’ Obamacare, on the other hand, will not pay for his drugs, MRI’s, or medical devices.
The insurance would cost $1500 a month and the deductible is $13,500.
He doesn’t want to burden his family. He decided to pay the fine and let nature take its course. He said he ‘thought long and hard’ and had ‘prayed’ about it.
An insurance adjuster name C. Steven Tucker friended Mr. Everett on Facebook after hearing his story on Fox News and offered to help and he did help.
An exchange between the two men from the iOwnTheWorld blog (click the link for more information):
“Steve, the company decided to keep me active. Since it is a chronic illness. Until this illness kills me. Battle #1 is won. Now the hard part. You literally saved me. Thank you so much.”
Those are the greatest words I have ever heard in my 20 year career as a licensed health insurance broker. I couldn’t be a happier man today! – C. Steven Tucker
After the show aired and Mr. Eliot appeared on radio to discuss his plight, the IRS notified him that they will audit him, according to Frontpage.* His interview isn’t scheduled until April 2014, a painfully long ways away.
He has terminal cancer!!!
As if that isn’t enough, C. Steven Tucker was also notified by the IRS that he was being audited back to 2003.
Audits don’t usually start off going back ten years. The IRS will do two years and, if they find irregularities, they will go back further.
I’m sure it is a coincidence. It’s not as if the IRS would target an opponent, oh, wait…
People who aren’t opponents of Mr. Obama might not care and might even think it is merely a coincidence but they wouldn’t if they were in the crosshairs, and one day they will be. That’s how abusive governments work.
