A few months ago, the federal government began an unprecedented crackdown on lawyers who help people evade taxes.
The Justice Department has issued orders to hundreds of attorneys and other tax lawyers in more than 50 states to tell clients that they must stop doing so and take a tax advice course.
If they refuse, the Justice Department is looking to seize their assets.
The goal is to get the tax attorneys to take the classes, which offer practical tips to avoid the pitfalls of tax evasion.
For some of them, it’s a huge step forward.
But others say it’s just another step toward a government crackdown on their livelihoods.
“It’s really a violation of their constitutional rights,” said lawyer Robert J. Dickey, a partner at Dickey & Rees in Washington, D.C., who has defended clients against many tax-related lawsuits.
“The First Amendment is supposed to be about free speech.
It’s not supposed to affect your ability to practice law.”
And that’s what makes it a bit odd that the Justice Ministry is looking for legal advice to teach tax attorneys how to avoid paying taxes.
In an email, a spokesperson for the Justice ministry said the ministry is “investigating the nature of the activities being investigated” and “the actions of individuals” who may have violated the tax law.
But if there’s anything that can be done to stop these people from continuing to do it, it might be to have them take a course that is specifically designed to help tax lawyers avoid these sorts of problems, like the tax-avoidance techniques used by lawbreakers.
The tax lawyer who I spoke with in Washington says he was “in a state of shock” when the IRS started cracking down on him.
He said he had never before faced any type of enforcement action against him.
“I don’t know how you make a case for an attorney who doesn’t understand the tax code and doesn’t know their clients,” he said.
“That was the biggest shock.
” Tax lawyers have been making a comeback since Trump took office, but not so much for personal reasons. “
Instead, the law has gotten more complicated and complex. “

The new tax law means that people who owe taxes have to report more information, and people who haven’t paid their taxes have become a huge source of revenue for governments, with more than $100 billion in the last year alone.
The burden of collecting taxes is becoming more and more on the wealthy, who can deduct their losses.
“There’s a whole lot of people who need help, and they’re paying the price for the government’s inability to get it right.” “
You’ve got this huge budget deficit, which is really taxing the people who are most vulnerable, the people on food stamps,” said Tax Attorney Scott Boggs, who’s represented clients including the wealthy and the famous.
“There’s a whole lot of people who need help, and they’re paying the price for the government’s inability to get it right.”
It’s a system that, by definition, is not sustainable.
The government’s coffers are thinning at a rate of roughly $5 billion a day.
Tax experts say that means that the government needs to come up with ways to pay off its debts.
If the federal budget is going to be sustainable, the government is going not only to need to raise taxes but also cut spending.
Tax lawyers, who often argue that they need to make more money than they take in, are getting squeezed.
“Tax lawyers are seeing their revenue drop precipitously,” said Bogges.
“People are losing confidence in the tax profession.”
And the government isn’t helping.
In 2017, the United States was in a deficit of more than a trillion dollars.
The U.S. has about $2 trillion in unfunded liabilities, and if the government wants to pay back that money it has to do something to balance the budget.
It can’t just give out free money to everyone, because the tax bill will be higher than the cost of doing business.
“In 2017, tax lawyers were seeing their revenues drop precipitous, and there was this fear of a crisis,” said attorney Jeff Buehler, a tax lawyer in California.
“This is just the latest example of the government being out of control.”
Buehlers clients have been hit especially hard.
He’s represented thousands of clients, from small businesses to large corporations.
In some cases, he’s not even able to do his tax work because the IRS is not letting him do it.
“These clients have gone from paying me $1,000 to paying me a couple hundred dollars a month,” Buelly says.
“But if the IRS isn’t letting me do my tax work, then I don’t have anything left to pay.”
In 2016, Buellers clients filed an appeal with the U.N. Human Rights Council over
