    IRS Seizing Tax Refunds of Children, Grandchildren Over Parents' Decades-Old Debts

    IRS Seizing Tax Refunds of Children, Grandchildren Over Parents' Decades-Old De | Fox News Insider

    WTF? Whats next, sending people to jail because of the crimes of the grandparents?

    Holding one person accountable for another persons debt in insane.


    .....Congress quietly lifted the 10-year statute of limitations in 2011 on money owed to Uncle Sam.
    Now, debts going back decades are considered fair game for the IRS, and the government is coming after the children and grandchildren of the original debtors for the repayment.
    In some cases, debts of parents from the early 1960s and 70s are being collected from children.
    Mary Grice whose father died when she was 4 years old in 1977, leaving her mother with five children. Thirty-seven years later, the Social Security administration is claiming that it overpaid someone in her family, but it isn't sure whom, and is going after Ms. Grice for the alleged debt.
    I would like to find the bill and look and see the voting record on this.

    That is really sneaky. Doing that behind the back of the citizens. I guess we can't even trust the Democrats!

    What is worse is that in order to fight it they have to get a lawyer and file charges which cost even more then the amount owed.
    there are also statute of limitations on such things, and they can only go after the estate while it is in probate. once out of probate they have no claim to file.

    there are other legal protections out there is just takes them argued in the court.

    The Congress removed the statute of limitations for this in 2011.

    If the text of the bill is online, finding it would be great. I'd like to see how the votes fell too.

    I guess when the government says it wants additional revenue not only do they mean it but they'll get it however they can.

    Its from 2008 and where?... kinda a lot to read lol.

    Not that this surprises me one bit, since it is a corporatists dream of enslaving generations.

    EDIT:

    Ahh the bill is from 2008!

    Treasury confiscates tax refunds: The government asks children to pay parents old social security debts.

    Sneaky!
