Underfunded IRS aids rich tax cheats -- William H. Tishler

Like most good citizens you, probably pay your fair share of taxes. Yet many corporations and some of the wealthiest Americans pay not one cent. This is a grave injustice.

The IRS tries to combat this, but it lacks adequate personnel to pursue audits and legal fights against well-financed tax evaders. In fact, the IRS now has fewer auditors than at any time since World War II.

For many years, the IRS has been a favorite target of Republicans. Their congressional representatives are alarmed about an empowered IRS. They, along with right-wing advocacy groups and banks, want to hang on to existing tax loopholes.

If you want to help resolve this serious injustice, consider the outcome if you vote Republican.
