RE: Additions to Tax?...and tax court...
If you read the attachment of rights carefully of what comes with the standard [certified mailer] notices of deficiency you will see a trap laid for the unsuspecting person. Of course this is all dealing with tax court and your “right” to an administrative hearing. The attachment is supposed to explain those rights. There is a series of questions and these are as if YOU are asking them….with responses. I can’t recall the actual words but the jist of the question is “What if I feel I don’t owe the tax?” Can’t you imagine the patriot thinking, “Yes!! That’s the one!! That’s me!! I’ll finally have my day in court to get even with the IRS’s ACS that keeps sending me these letters.”
However notice carefully the answer to the question….for it only deals with the AMOUNT of the tax! [not the liability for the tax].
Sneaky eh? Folks…tax court is an administrative court for transferees of payments. I doubt you are that. You are already assumed LIABLE for the tax when you invoke the request for the hearing. There is NO salvation in the few pieces of silver due process tossed before you called a hearing….it’s just a trap.
