New IRS rules target your hard disk drive. The IRS already can get your G-mail or Yahoo Mail data. But that’s not enough.
Are you aware of the following?
In case you missed it, on October 18, the IRS issued what’s called a “Chief Counsel Advice” (CCA) concerning what it calls “original electronic data files.” Basically, the IRS now asserts the right to issue a summons to force a taxpayer to provide this data within whatever statute of limitation applies for the type of examination the agency is undertaking. And that means that you need to be careful not to dispose of any electronic communications or records you maintain that might concern some future tax issue.
This means just about everything.
What electronic records does the IRS want you to maintain? Essentially, it’s “metadata,” which Google helpfully defines as “a set of data that describes and gives information about other data.” But in the context of an IRS examination, or other demand for electronic data, metadata is information on who, when, and how electronic data was created. For instance, the IRS could request e-mail metadata including:
* Recipient(s), including cc and bcc
* Date and time sent
* Date and time received
* Attachment relationship to original email (and metadata fields listed for e-documents)
* Forwarded e-mails; attachment documents and files
Fortunately or unfortunately, every email you send or receive probably has the metadata associated with it automatically included. So does every file you save on your PC. To get a sense of what information email metadata contains, look at the “Internet headers” your messages – sent and received – contain. It’s easy to produce this data if you save your emails or computer files without editing them. Editing the emails or files changes the metadata. But be careful: these changes may be recorded in the metadata!
This is just the beginning. It gets worse.
If this scares the digits out of you, you have got the picture.

The supposedly freest nation on Earth wouldn't be enslaved to the government via an income tax. We shouldn't be threatened by a financial Gestapo. It's time to eradicate the income tax, and disband the draconian IRS. We got along without an income tax before 1913, except in times of war, and we should return to that in order to reign in the out of control spending government, and it's tyrannical ways.
This is a total invasion of privacy by the federal government and sooner or later (sooner I Hope) someone will file suit against the
IRS and OBUNNER against this invasion. I have been telling everyone for months that he is a closet muslim working with and for
the Islam extremist all over the world to bring this country down to a ruin state for easy take over and the institution of Sharia Law.
Your representatives and senators are to stupid to see what he is doing or they are in on his plan and going along with it because they will be lining their pockets to become even more of the elitist group who will be running this country and watching over the peasants working their asses of to keep it running.
What ever you do in November of 2012 DO NOT vote for this man again or your going to be unable to change this country back to what it was before he was elected in 2008. He and his anti-capitalist crony's are the most dangerous enemy that this country has ever faces in our existence. If you do vote for him in 2012 you deserve exactly what your going to get, but just remember when your not standing after the revolution is over you will have no one to blame but yourself, unlike OBUNNER who will blame everyone including you whether your standing or not. This man need to be taken out of the picture right now and even if he is replaced with OBIDEN it would be good because at least OBIDEN is so stupid he can be controlled. Think about it folks you country is at stake, along with you children, grand children and anyone else you know who loves this country and their freedom that it offers.
I doubt that RP could find a bimbo willing to take his money. He is not a hottie!
I believe that email communication should be as private as one person speaking to another. Both of which are non of the government's business.
reaqd this link to learn the TRUTH!!!.
you will learn more truth in 1 hour than you did in 12 years of Publik School.
Can anyone say tax reform?
Hmmm , do I smell Obama in this ?
I see this as a good thing. I'm sick and tired of Big Business and/or millionaires being able to hide assets and not have to pay their fair share of taxes, and then, me, and many other middle-classed tax payer, having to pick up the slack. High time SOMETHING was done to even things out.
OMG censored again, Thanks Mr. Censor even though you know what I wrote was the truth.
Well I'm sorry if the bad boys wish to search my pc they're welcome to it. I do absolutely no financial junk on this here thing -don't know how. I just look up garden stuff and gun stuff a little advice and e-mail relatives and friends . I've joined some groups but I don't order from these on line sites or donate mostly because the wife won't allow me to have any money – I'd spend it on ammo anyway. So this doesn't frighten this old fart even a little bit.
You are all freakin' blood sucking leeches.
You're time of downsizing is just around the corner.
Soon, your headquarters will be the size of a broom closet.
The time has come for massive tax reform that will make your department almost obsolete.
A flat tax on all income earners will put your sorry asses on Preparation H and rid the USA of a large painful hemmoroid the taxpayers have dealt with for decades.
Go f..k yourselves. Your feakin boss cheated on his taxes, you imbeciles!!!
