Tax Resolution Expert, Attorney Lance Drury Provides Update on IRS Civil Asset Forfeiture Program.
St Genevieve, MO, February 4, 2015: Tax resolution attorney Lance Drury, founder of the Law Firm of Lance R. Drury, and best selling author of “Successonomics” posted a new blog on the LANCE DRURY LAW website entitled “A Reversal of Fortune for The IRS Civil Asset Forfeiture Program.” Providing hope for anyone who has ever been or may be the target of this program, Drury cites a milestone case saying, “The case has sparked political action. Civil forfeiture has also become an issue in the confirmation of the nominee for U.S. Attorney General.”
Drury brings his readers up to speed with a brief review of the Civil Asset Forfeiture program, writing that it “allows the IRS to monitor and seize the assets of small businesses and individuals without ever having to prove they were in any way involved in criminal activity. Initially originated as a way to target alleged terrorists and tax evaders, the IRS decided to target anyone who makes a series of small deposits in a relatively short period of time that adds up to $10,000 or more.”
The case, reported in Accounting Today, marks the first time the IRS has been forced to return assets. Drury quotes the article, “Federal prosecutors have agreed to return nearly $447,000 to a small business whose assets had been seized by the Internal Revenue Service and Treasury Department agents as part of the controversial civil forfeiture program.” (www.accountingtoday.com/news/legal-watch/prosecutors-return-447000-in-irs-civil-asset-forfeiture-case-73379)
Drury adds, “If you have been an innocent target of the IRS Civil Asset Forfeiture Program, get help from the most experienced tax attorney you can find. The precedent has been set. All is not lost.”
