Ran across this and couldn’t resist sharing. I first saw it on blog Kruse & Crawford CPAs. Note they also are blogging about FATCA, FBAR and taxation. http://www.kruseandcrawford.com/2010/02/04/the-irs-is-soliciting-quotes-for-shotguns/
“The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) intends to purchase sixty Remington Model 870 Police RAMAC #24587 12 gauge pump-action shotguns for the Criminal Investigation Division. The Remington parkerized shotguns, with fourteen inch barrel, modified choke, Wilson Combat Ghost Ring rear sight and XS4 Contour Bead front sight, Knoxx Reduced Recoil Adjustable Stock, and Speedfeed ribbed black forend, are designated as the only shotguns authorized for IRS duty based on compatibility with IRS existing shotgun inventory, certified armorer and combat training and protocol, maintenance, and parts.”
I had to remind myself that most of us do not live in the US, and so far, they can’t enforce in other countries. Of course, with the RCMP ‘easing Canadians into the idea’ of US agents in Canada, can we count on it remaining that way?
