i think it is correct.Quote:
I read an interesting commentary on this case. The author of the commentary suggested (I have no idea if this is true or not) that under Federal law the prosecutor doesn't have to show "mens rea" (a guilty mind). That is you can blindly break the law without any intention but still you broke the law and so you are guilty.
Yea, the IRS promulgates a lot of Regs and Rulings and they have their own enforcement fellas, but there is a robust history of judicial oversight from multiple Courts, so other than being real careful, and being highly specialized and sticking to that speciality, it isn't that big of deal. I won't hardly touch anything International, for example. I'd hate to be a youngster now though............
Shockwave; I pretty much agreed with you until those last two paragraphs. They kind of came out of.............well.............I just didn't get it. Kind of unsupported hyperbole? You're the Editor so I'll let you support those statements. I'm not being confrontational or combative, those just kind of jumped out of some weird space. Sorry. And don't blame it on "beancounters". They rarely make decisions, they provide options to the decision makers. I don't worry much about any of it to be honest, and if I do, it's only 18-24" or so. Big deal. That's why we have software and insurance, eh?
