Back taxes: A problem that will not go away on its own

Improper targeting shows IRS prone to mistakes

The Internal Revenue Service has an aura about it: the federal tax collecting agency seems to be an all-powerful entity that cannot be questioned or tested.

They have also likely heard of tax liens being placed on individuals, making their financial lives very difficult.
