Hoyt Fiasco: $103M Heist + Kevin Brown's
Victim information, evidence, rules of law, IRS viewpoints
|Why did the IRS lead prosecuting attorney in the Hoyt case quit in disgust?|
We are not much different from you. The difference is that we are victims of a $103 million fraud conducted by IRS employees, followed by even more fraud to silence the victims. The costly and illegal abuses ordered by (now former) IRS executive Kevin Brown were so outrageous and morally offensive that his lead prosecutor quit in disgust.
We can't stress enough the fact this has nothing to do with tax collection or funding the government. It's all about hiding the fraud committed by Kevin Brown and cohorts. In fact, the IRS is sloppy about enforcing the tax code in any way that makes any sense.
Kevin Brown proved, with tragic consequences and wide-spread devastation, that the IRS does not provide adequate oversight of its employees. In fact, Brown epitomizes the culture of crime that pervades the IRS. The GAO reported that IRS employees stole 4300 computers from their own offices in a single year. Small wonder this happens, with psychopaths like Kevin Brown holding very senior positions and doing what he did (human carnage, financial looting, intimidating subordinates to egregiously break the law, etc.).
We had hoped, as we learned the truth of Brown's complicity in this fiasco, that IRS employees would do the right thing and turn Brown in. That never happened. We had also hoped the IRS employees involved in this fiasco would follow the law, rather than follow Brown. In a few rare cases, that did happen. But it did not save the victims from the many illegal and personally devastating acts committed against them by law-scoffing IRS employees.
When we were able to get a response from the (relatively few) law-abiding employees inside the IRS, they were "mysteriously" made unavailable after they began investigating. We were told they were "transferred."
The Hoyt tragedy, which has dragged on illegally for over three decades, is not an anomaly. This kind of misconduct occurs because the IRS has far too much power and almost zero accountability. That needs to change.
Watch this video. Help stop the terrorism; contact your senator and each of your Congressional reps today. Send them this video and ask them why they tolerate this in what is alleged to be a civil society.
There is no recourse for victims. Tax Court is a joke, with, in our case, a judge creating and entering false evidence that even the IRS attorneys objected to though it was favorable to their case (the evidence stood).
Referring to the Tax Code is also pointless. IRS simply disregarded it, making up a special "code" of their own to destroy the Kevin Brown victims with.
It's well documented, BY THE IRS, that the Hoyt Fiasco victims did nothing wrong. Many paid the ultimate price, despite being innocent. Yet, Geithner and Rangel (a tax cheat and a tax cheat who committed criminal offenses respectively) both got a free pass.
Some things just stand out as extremely wrong. For example:|
The documents below may prove useful in your own situation in talking with the IRS, or when writing to legislators to make them aware of how your particular case yet another example of abuse from the IRS. It's a good idea to read these and make yourself familiar with the principles involved. If you want to explore a referenced court case further, you can find information at your local law library.
Do not ask the PDFT attorneys about these documents or about these cases. If you wish to use them in a legal effort, please refer to your individual attorney.
Here are some philosophically-related documents. If the government is so desperate for money, why not cut back on regulations instead of focus on wiping out innocent victims of a scam abetted by federal employees?
|Why the double
standards and dirty dealing? Maybe it has
something to do with the fact that only IRS employees can
possibly know where the "missing" $103 million
happened to "disappear" to. At the IRS, Kevin Brown in
particular was determined to keep that a secret.
Kevin Brown so aggressively drove the IRS machinery against the Hoyt victims that his lead attorney quit in disgust. This had absolutely nothing to do with "collecting taxes" or "funding the government," because Brown's storm troopers spent far more government money attacking the Hoyt victims than could ever be collected from them. In some cases, individual victims were singled out for abuse and the IRS spent more on each person than that person could earn in a lifetime.
Once the victims were devastated and thus no longer a potential threat, Brown left the IRS (which, incidentally, never recovered the missing $103 million). First Brown followed his former boss to the scandal-plagued Red Cross and then left there as well....
Covering up a robbery. The Hoyt victims were robbed by IRS employees colluding with Jay Hoyt over many years. Is this why Kevin Brown took it upon himself to come up with a special tax on theft--even though nowhere in the income tax code does any such thing exist even in theory--and stick that to the Hoyt victims?
Brown's special illegal tax law works similar to: someone robs your house and you have to pay taxes on what they took. That's the essence of Brown's creative and illegal legislating.
Brown's misconduct ensured that due process was eliminated and the all timelines expired before victims could do anything other than be on the hook. Brown and his minions not only failed to notify potential victims but lied to them in writing when they inquired. Writing that "You will have no personal tax liability" isnot, contrary to Brown's later assertions in the Kangaroo Tax Court, the same as notifying someone they owe a tax.
Thanks to Brown's lies, deceptions, and abuse of power, the IRS is still aggressively attacking people whose only "crime" was to believe what the IRS told them--in writing. But they let the tax cheats below get away with obvious tax cheating. Why the double standard?
The IRS has done nothing about these actual tax cheats:
Can we count on help from the DOJ? Hardly. O.J. Simpson committed a brutal double homicide, yet the government let him walk away. Meanwhile, people whose only "crime" was to trust IRS employees' written assurances are being systematically destroyed. Why the double standard? After you read this dumb response from the DOJ, you'll wonder if aliens could ever find any sign of intelligent life there.
Well, maybe our Defense Department will defend thousands of innocent Americans against brutal attacks? Wrong again. The number of victims of the Hoyt Fiasco exceeds the number of victims of all three attacks on the World Trade Center combined (1992 and 2001). In both cases, the attacks caused innocent people to die. Congress has done nothing for the 4300 Hoyt victims across America, but for an attack on fewer Americans in just one city--the entire nation went to war.
The IRS is using tactics one of their own attorneys publicly stated were unethical and morally indefensible (as reported in the Augusta Chronicle). That statement came out before the trial in which IRS people suppressed material evidence and repeatedly claimed "I can't remember" instead of answering questions on the witness stand.
How can anyone justify devastating thousands of innocent people who relied on the written promises of government officials? The costs to the remaining victims continue to mount, as government employees continue to misappropriate IRS resources and violate Congressional mandates in their zeal to destroy the victims.
Consider these victim statements:
Imagine being bilked of your retirement savings, with the help of people working for a federal agency. Imagine that those people provided you written assurances that your suspicions of wrong-doing were incorrect--that they had examined things and you had nothing to worry about.
Now imagine--after you discover that, yes, you had been defrauded after all, these same people create a "theft tax" and hit you with tax bills that would stagger someone earning ten times what you make.
Denying you due process, they threaten you with prison if you don't fork over absurdly large amounts of money--more than you could earn in a lifetime. And they do this even though nowhere in the Tax Code is there any such thing as a "theft tax" (tip: it's called an "income tax").
If you think that can't happen to innocent American citizens, think again.
Welcome to the Hoyt Fiasco.
This clearly is not "a taxation issue," though some IRS employees keep telling legislators it is and supplying misinformation to support that allegation. There are very good reasons why the judge who sentenced Jay Hoyt to spend the rest of his life in prison sent a message back to the government. The IRS has been hijacked by a handful of employees to embark on an expensive bureaucratic exercise in abuse. What motivated those employees to do this? Is it a coincidence that $103 million is somehow "missing" even though these folks are the only ones other than Jay Hoyt to have access to all the records? And why have they blocked every effort of the defrauded investors to see those records?
We are trying to remain unbiased. Despite the situation inflicted on us, we have tried to cooperate with the IRS. While they have made statements we have proven wrong, we have made every effort to present the facts as we know them and not to distort things just to further our agenda. In fact, we have asked IRS officials to let us know if any information on this site is inaccurate.
We are not anti-IRS. We aren't on some mission to make the IRS look bad (we can't possibly do that as well as they do already). We are thankful for good people in the IRS who oppose the inexcusable way other folks in the IRS are handling this fiasco and mistreating the Hoyt victims. Unfortunately, the good people do not seem to be the ones in charge. And why hasn't Congress put a stop to this blatant abuse? Have members of Congress forgotten that "representative" means something?
We are not tax protestors. We are not trying to protest taxes or shirk our duties as citizens. We are not part of any tax protest group, nor are we one ourselves. We seek to thwart specific abuse, conducted by people in the IRS. This outrageous violation of the public trust has already cost the taxpayers far too much. Worse, it has taken the lives of several victims and ruined the lives of hundreds more. How many more innocent American citizens will be unlawfully stripped of their property or even their very lives, before we can resolve this in an intelligent, lawful, and equitable manner?
