Planet Money – Larry vs. The IRS

As the elections approach and discourse becomes more and more conspiracy oriented, I wanted to post an older podcast from Planet Money. Since the Federal Government started collecting taxes (the beginning) there has been tax protesters, from the Whiskey and Shay’s Rebellions to the modern legal protester. This episode of Planet Money takes us through some of the historical tax tricks and protests, but mainly focuses on current legal precedent by following one story of a tax evader, but also many of the court cases of tax issues from which flag is flying and more.
