  •  Just past the statute of limitations? (7+ / 0-)

    I believe the 2005 tax year is, unfortunately, no longer open for the IRS to challenge, unless they already have an open file on this one. Too bad -- would love to see this end with a Markey win and a large tax bill to Gomez.

    •  No idea if the IRS (7+ / 0-)

      is looking at Gomez in particular. They can't go after everyone. I'll settle for a Markey win!

      My reference to the statute of limitations (so nobody's confused) was to the small claims suit brought recently, eight years after the unpaid appraisal, by the first appraiser.

      Republicans...think the American standard of living is a fine thing--so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire the Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it. Harry S. Truman

    •  Fraud (0+ / 0-)

      Usually starts the statute clock ticking when it's discovered because of the nature of the crime.

      We don't, as a society, believe in rewarding fraudsters because they were good at hiding their crimes.
