Hoyt Fiasco: $103M Heist + Kevin Brown's
Victim information, evidence, rules of law, IRS viewpoints

legislators, the Justice Department, or the President, does no good. You
must send hard copy.
That's how backwards and out of touch they are. And if you really want
action, you must do as their corporate sponsors do and find a way to send
them vast sums of money without leaving a trail. THAT is how you get all the
government you can afford to buy. We regular citizens do not get
representation. We get misrepresentation and we get fleeced.|
But if you do decide to take a gamble that one of these people will actually care, here are a few things you need to know.
Be aware that letters pertaining to the IRS or the Hoyt Fiasco get routed through the Taxpayer Assistance Office (TAO). The TAO does nothing about this. So to save yourself postage, just toss your letter directly in the trash. That's where it's going anyhow if it seems to pertain to the IRS or the Hoyt Fiasco.
You could state clearly in your letter that you are not writing about a tax problem. But what they will do is scan the letter and see "tax problem." So don't do that.
You could ask that the recipient get your letter to your intended legislator, but that is unrealistic.
What you must do is focus on some aspect of criminal IRS behavior (anything less just doesn't warrant attention these days). Then write about crime. Do not even name the agency, in your letter. In no more than three paragraphs, describe the crime but do not use the words "tax" or "IRS" as doing so just gets your letter mis-categorized and trash-canned.
See the assistance center for a mail merge files with addresses.
Some experts advise that you also address your concerns to the TAO nearest you, because many people in the IRS think you do have a tax problem. This usually doesn't do any good, leading many IRS victims to refer to them as the Taxpayer Apathy Office. In fact, it often has disastrous consequences for the victim--and that leads many IRS victims to refer to them as the Taxpayer Attack Office.
But you have a penchant for rolling dice and think maybe the TAO will be helpful then make sure you give them ONLY one issue. And keep it simple. Write as if explaining to a 10 year old child, or you will likely not be understood by the TAO employee.
Provide as little detail as possible, so they don't focus on something minor instead of what you need addressed. The TAO has a tendency to do that.
Please be as factual as possible, whenever you write. Below are some tips originally written for Kevin Brown's victims.
Your individual contact should be a personal note from you in your own words describing your circumstances. Do not copy anyone else's letter. Form letters are not taken seriously. Also, the best letters stick to only a few points--rather than trying to address everything. Less is more.
Here are some things you can include in your note:
At the end, you should include a paragraph that asks your representative to take an action, like one of these:
Several other items should be included in your initial contact with your representative.
