EL: Pumpkin Revenuers Acted Right

Re: Idaho Tax Commission revenuers bust pumpkin stand

EndlessLosses: I’d PRAISE the tax inspector for doing her job — give her a raise! Pay your damn taxes. I’m so sick and tired of seeing my neighbors thinking that under-the-table cash transactions for firewood, snowplowing, truck gardening, etc. are tax exempt business activities. Yet they’d be the first to get their panties in a wad if some moneybags was not paying taxes. It doesn’t matter if the amount of taxes are small or large - the law is the law. I’m also sick and tired of the Idaho legislature providing loophole exemptions. Close the loopholes.

  • DFO: On my way to work, I heard Mike Huckabee of the “Huckabee Report” give his “Huckabee Zero” to the revenuers in this case.

Question: Anyone out there willing to agree w/EndlessLosses that the 2 revenuers were just doing their job when they shut down the kids’ pumpkin stand in Lewiston?
