Beschreibung

This is a fully documented inside examination of the Internal Revenue Service, in many ways the largest and most powerful of all federal agencies, and also the agency whose competent function is most essential to our democracy. The book's appearance in 1989 sparked a public furor and major legislation attempting to redress the IRS' many abuses of power, both political and bureaucratic. The book will be a relevant handbook as long as the agency remains a towering presence in American life.



Autorentext

David Burnham is one of America’s foremost investigative reporters. In more than 18 years with The New York Times he uncovered abuses, corruption and wrongdoing at powerful government agencies including the Internal Revenue Service, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, the FBI and the New York Police Department. His reporting work with Frank Serpico and David Durk led to the formation of the Knapp Commission and reform of the New York Police Department. Karen Silkwood was driving to meet with Burnham on abuses at the Kerr-McGee nuclear power plant in Oklahoma when she was killed under mysterious circumstances. For 25 years Burnham has been co-director of the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), a nonprofit organization affiliated with Syracuse University that uses government agencies’ own records to analyze and make public their actions and inactions in law and regulatory enforcement in areas such as drug use, immigration, tax collection, white-collar crime and weapons use.
