RATE’s not-so-gentle reminder

By

The case recently filed by Revenue Commissioner Kim Henares under the revitalized Run-After-Tax Evaders (RATE) program of the government against a tax practitioner recalls a tax evasion conviction, reported in the New York Times, that was handed down by the United States District Court in Las Vegas more than 10 years ago involving a former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) lawyer.
