New Information Reveals IRS Agent Used Fake Name to Target Ohio Resident


New Information Reveals IRS Agent Used Fake Name to Target Ohio Resident

This is the title of the press release issued on June 16, 2023 by the Committee on the Judiciary regarding a letter sent to IRS Commissioner Werfel.  To anyone doubting the manner in which the 87,000 new IRS agents will be used, this is a scary wake-up call.  The picture of the man pointing a gun is intentional.  Criminal Investigation Division IRS agents are almost always armed.

Here are some excerpts from the letter.
  • On March 27, 2023, the Committee previously wrote to you and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen about an IRS agent visiting—unannounced and unprompted—the home of journalist Matt Taibbi. Incredibly, at the time of the visit, Mr. Taibbi was testifying before the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government about how the federal government pressured, coerced, and even directed technology companies to take certain actions related to digital content. 
  • On April 25, 2023, an IRS agent—who identified himself as 'Bill Haus' with the IRS’s Criminal Division—visited the home of a taxpayer in Marion, Ohio. Agent 'Haus' informed the taxpayer he was at her home to discuss issues concerning an estate for which the taxpayer was the fiduciary. 
  • After Agent 'Haus' shared details about the estate that only the IRS would know, the taxpayer let him in. Agent 'Haus' told the taxpayer that she did not properly complete the filings for the estate and that she owed the IRS 'a substantial amount.' 
  • Prior to the visit, however, the taxpayer had not received any notice from the IRS of an outstanding balance on the estate.
  • During the visit, the taxpayer told Agent 'Haus' that the estate was resolved in January 2023, and provided him with proof that she had paid all taxes for the decedent's estate.
  • At this point, Agent 'Haus' revealed that the true purpose of his visit was not due to any issue with the decedent’s estate, but rather because the decedent allegedly had several delinquent tax return filings. Agent 'Haus' provided several documents to the taxpayer for her to fill out, which included sensitive information about the decedent.
  • The taxpayer called her attorney who immediately and repeatedly asked Agent 'Haus' to leave the taxpayer's home. 
  • Agent 'Haus' responded aggressively, insisting: 'I am an IRS agent, I can be at and go into anyone's house at any time I want to be.' 
  • Before finally leaving the taxpayer’s property, Agent 'Haus' said he would mail paperwork to the taxpayer and threatened that she had one week to satisfy the remaining balance or he would freeze all her assets and put a lien on her house.
  • On May 4, 2023, the taxpayer spoke with the supervisor over Agent 'Haus,' who clarified nothing was owed on the estate. The supervisor even admitted to the taxpayer that 'things never should have gotten this far.' 
  • On May 5, 2023, however, the taxpayer received a letter from the IRS— the first and only written notice the taxpayer received of the decedent’s delinquent tax filings—addressed to the decedent, which stated the decedent was delinquent on several 1040 filings. 
  • On May 15, 2023, the taxpayer spoke again with supervisor of Agent 'Haus,' who told the taxpayer to disregard the May 5 letter because nothing was due. 
  • On May 30, 2023, the taxpayer received a letter from the IRS that the case had been closed.
  • This behavior from an IRS agent to an American taxpayer—providing an alias, using deception to secure entry into the taxpayer's home, and then filing an Inspector General complaint against a police officer examining that matter—is highly concerning. 


We all know them—people among us who delight in using their position to exert power over us.  It can be the city employee who closes the help window straight up at noon because that’s his lunch time.  He doesn’t care that people may have been waiting in line for 30 minutes or more.  He’s going to make them wait until his lunch break is over or until some other employee opens the window.

All of us have seen people who seem to resent having to serve others and who will do anything they can to frustrate or humiliate those they are supposed to be serving.  However, there is a difference in the Mr. “Haus” case—he was almost certainly armed and was threatening to take aggressive IRS action unless the lady instantly complied with his demands.

How many more IRS agents are like Mr. “Haus”?   We don’t know exactly, but there are undoubtedly a significant number of them who enjoy being in a position where they can legally threaten and coerce people.  

Why does Congress allow these types of abuses?  Because they have been told that people won’t pay their taxes unless they are threatened or coerced. 

What does this say about our tax system?  Do people living in a free country really want a tax system that has to be enforced at gunpoint?  Is this our future—to be accosted in our own homes by armed IRS personnel who use deception to gain entry and then threaten us if we don’t immediately satisfy their unfounded demands?

We should remember this quote from George Orwell's 1984, which, if we do nothing, may foretell your and your children's future:
“If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face—forever.”

How much longer will the D.C. establishment ignore the obvious—the income/payroll tax system and the IRS are broken and cannot be fixed?

How much longer will we tolerate the D.C. establishment’s refusal to do the right thing because of their greed and desperate desire to control us?

How much longer will Americans tolerate not knowing the true cost of the federal government that the income/payroll tax hides and the FAIRtax shows on every receipt?

How much longer will the American people tolerate IRS abuses?

Congress and D.C. know that there is a better alternative—the FAIRtax.

Instead of spending time doing endless hours of paperwork that don’t create anything of value to yourself, your family or the nation, why not eliminate the unnecessary waste?

Many in D.C. oppose the FAIRtax because it would transfer power from the government to the people, while at the same time, giving the people a better chance of succeeding on their own.

Isn’t it time to end this ludicrous tax collection system and the IRS?

When the FAIRtax is enacted, there will be no need to fear being audited by the IRS because there will be no more IRS.  

Under the FAIRtax, there will be no more tax returns.  We will pay our taxes when we make retail purchases of new goods and services.
There is going to be a vote on the FAIRtax in the House of Representatives.  McCarthy and the other elites didn’t want it, but it was forced on them.

We now have the opportunity to force all Members of the House to show where they stand.  They can:
  • Vote for the present income/payroll tax system or for the FAIRtax.
  • Support the corrupt income tax and the IRS or eliminate them.  It can’t be any simpler than that.
  • Hide the true cost of their government or pass the FAIRtax and show everyone the true cost of government on each retail receipt.
  • Support the largest transfer of power from government to the people, the FAIRtax, or not.
If Members think that the FAIRtax needs to be changed, then they can propose the change.  Don’t let them reject the entire bill because it has a “flaw” that can be easily addressed.  

Please stand with us and demand that your representative support a much fairer, much simpler and much more efficient way to fund the government—the FAIRtax!

There are no tax returns to file and no records to keep.  We pay our federal taxes when we make retail purchases of new goods and services, and there is no need for the IRS.  If you sell a used couch or used jet ski online, there is no FAIRtax due on that transaction.
The FAIRtax will allow us to TAKE BACK CONTROL.

The income/payroll tax system is broken and no longer working—we can’t repair it but we can replace it with the FAIRTAX!
We all should remember Edmund Burke’s warning that applies to our efforts to TAKE BACK CONTROL,
“Nobody made a greater mistake than he who did nothing because he could do only a little.”
We can write letters and make calls to our elected representatives and attend Zoom town hall meetings demanding that if they really want to allow Americans to “TAKE BACK CONTROL”, the first step is to eliminate the income/payroll tax system and enact the FAIRTAX!
