and...there is a statute of limitations. It used to be seven years until Clinton jacked it to 10 when he was president. You still have to either have no assets for them to steal or make it look that way without being caught, which is an unadvised and dangerous game to play with them.
I once, yanked 60K out of my account and then marched my ass down to the local IRS station and told them I did it. The lady agent asked me why I did that...I told her "so, y'all couldn't steal it"...her response...OK. hahaha
Some of them just don't care...they're after bigger fish in a lot of instances.
I should write a book on hilarious encounters with the IRS.
