National Tax Reform Group Hires Ax The Tax Founder, Plots Audit Of IRS

The Washington-based organization, Tax Revolution Institute (TRI), a non-partisan, non-profit organization committed to promoting transparency, accountability, and integrity at all levels of the U.S. tax system, has announced a major new initiative to audit the IRS.

Recently, the TRI launched a national campaign to hold the Internal Revenue Service accountable to taxpayers during the Freedom Fest national confab in Las Vegas in July.


TRI Director Dan Johnson explained, “The IRS can demand up to 6 years of accurate information from you when they perform an audit. Yet they regularly deny re-quests for information, ignore subpoenas from Congress, and destroy records.”


When the IRS does provide information, it tends to be ‘substantially misleading and inaccurate.’ We need an independent audit of the IRS, and the Tax Revolution Institute needs your help. They are conducting the first-ever independent audit of the IRS.


TRI has also recently appointed tax-fighter and coalition builder Doug Guetzloe as the organization’s “Coalitions Advisor.”


Guetzloe brings decades of coalition building experience from his professional and political activities with organizations, candidates and campaigns as well as his highly successful nationally recog-nized “Ax the Tax’ movement founded in 1982.


“Doug contributes a unique set of skills to our organization and we’re glad to have him join our efforts,” said TRI Communications Director Alex Vidal.


“We’ve watched his successes for many years and know he’ll be a great asset to our coalition building and this new initiative to audit the IRS,” Vidal continued.


“I’m pleased to join the only national effort to audit the IRS and bring accountability to the organization while a new path is debated and chosen to reform it or abolish it,” Guetzloe stated.
