IRS Seizes $107,000 From Innocent Small Business, Despite Recent Policy Changes

Lyndon McLellan has spent more than a decade running L&M Convenience Mart, a gas station, restaurant, and convenience store in rural Fairmont, North Carolina. Then, one year ago, without any warning, agents from the IRS seized his entire bank account, totaling more than $107,000.

The United States government is getting desperate for money, so they target people who don’t have the money to hire lawyers and tie the cases up in court for years.  The wealthy can end up COSTING the government money if they go after them, so they go after those who can’t fight back – namely US! Thankfully, Mr. McClellen fought back and won.  However he’s an exception.  Most of us who fight end up losing.
