Dear James,

$75.7 billion! That's the amount of outstanding tax liabilities
that the Internal Revenue Service estimates is owed by more than 6.1
million individuals and businesses to the U.S. Treasury.

I urgently need you to click here
http://www.cagw.org/site/R?i=Cr87HV0hQwWxNQlxj6Xdtw.. today
to help CCAGW pass a commonsense reform that would help the IRS
collect these delinquent funds.

President Bush supports legislation that has been introduced in
the House, H.R.2896, known as the American Jobs Creation Act, that
would allow the IRS to use private debt collection companies to
collect delinquent taxes. In 1984, CCAGW's precursor organization,
the Grace Commission, recommended improving the collection of
delinquent taxes. Almost 20 years later, this concept still makes
sound fiscal sense.

The IRS Oversight Board, created to oversee the tax agency's
management, has testified before Congress on the poor customer
service record and overall failure of the IRS to enforce tax laws.
Even IRS Commissioner Mark Everson has acknowledged that the
IRS simply cannot track down every single tax dodger and supports
a program to use private debt collectors to go after unpaid taxes.

Authorizing the IRS to use private debt collection agencies would
increase the efficiency of the IRS. It is also a cost-effective
approach to recovering delinquent taxes since the private collection
firms would be paid out of the money they collect. Taxpayers' rights
and privacy can be protected by ensuring that private agencies that
contract with the IRS are limited to specific responsibilities and
allowed no enforcement powers. The agencies would operate under
IRS supervision and be bound by the same rules as the IRS regarding
taxpayer rights and confidentiality.

tell your U.S. Representative to support the private tax collection
provision of the American Jobs Creation Act today. Tell Congress to
be fair to taxpayers by helping the IRS go after tax evaders!

Can y'all say "terribly misinformed"? I think it is the responsibility of all of us to email Mr. Schatz and set him straight! I politely unloaded on him a little earlier and I feel better already!
