People like this deeply confuse me

The IRS ain't sending an agent to you specifically unless you've done something well beyond the pale of what can just be excused as a mix-up or simple misunderstanding

You gotta be in a whole different kinda space for the tax man to be someone you gotta personally interact with.

The IRS? Did he like, not pay taxes on his suicide vest or something?

[-] Iheartcheese@lemmy.world 64 points 1 month ago

Who among us has not done that.

[-] Illegalmexicant@lemmy.world 8 points 1 month ago

It's a work experience. Well I'm about to have it as my uniform for a day

[-] psmgx@lemmy.world 2 points 1 month ago

If it's a work uniform then it can be deducted

[-] moosetwin@lemmy.dbzer0.com 3 points 1 month ago

Who among us

I had this entire sequence play through my head when I read your comment

He threw out the receipt after declaring it as a business expense.

[-] greenhorn@lemm.ee 77 points 1 month ago

The banality of evil. A roku remote, Christmas themed tea towel, a Christmas snowman countdown calendar, and a suicide vest to and paying taxes

[-] Chronographs@lemmy.zip 29 points 1 month ago

Suicide vest is in christmas colors too

[-] eezeebee@lemmy.ca 23 points 1 month ago

Merry Christmas ya filthy animal

[-] JoeBigelow@lemmy.ca 9 points 1 month ago

We're the Wet Bandits

[-] 4am@lemm.ee 15 points 1 month ago

I feel like Roku customers are just the right amount of intelligent to post their suicide vest jokes on Twitter and think it’s not a big deal

You don't wanna fuck with the IRS.

Even the Joker is afraid of the IRS.

[-] Mirshe@lemmy.world 46 points 1 month ago

As Behind the Bastards pointed out recently in their Kent Hovind episode, the IRS doesn't give a shit about what illegal or immoral activity you commit, they literally just want you to pay taxes on it.

[-] afraid_of_zombies@lemmy.world 17 points 1 month ago

It used to be tax deductable to bribe government officials of foreign governments.

Unrelated, if you get bribed in time with a hooker do you report it based on what she charges or fair market rate or is there a set amount? I feel like someone at the IRS sat down and came up with an answer to this.

[-] rimmedalpha@lemmynsfw.com 2 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

It's a separate form complete with nine pages of instructions outlining how to calculate market values based on region and services rendered. The formula isn't helpful, so in the end you just put in half of what you paid and hope you don't get audited.

[-] afraid_of_zombies@lemmy.world 3 points 1 month ago

Must be an interesting audit.

IRS agent: so you put down that you received a "Cincinnati Steamer" as part of your compensation for employing this vendor.

Dude: that's right

IRS agent: please describe what goes into a Cincinnati Steamer so I can assign it to a category or categories. Also do you happen to have her W2s and social security number?

Dude: sure, and no I don't have her paperwork. Surprisingly she didn't share it with me.

[-] MewtwoLikesMemes@lemmy.world 17 points 1 month ago

Not familiar with that show/movie/whatever, but they aren't wrong. The IRS just wants to be paid. You pay them, they leave you alone. Done.

[-] Duke_Nukem_1990@feddit.de 8 points 1 month ago

It's a podcast and it is delightful! In a depressive, horror-inducing kind of way.

[-] DaleGribble88@programming.dev 6 points 1 month ago

They do deep dives are random shitty people throughout history, and occasionally contemporary people like Andrew Tate. Usually it is people like 1940s gangsters, 1990s drug kingpins, King Leopold the 2nd, and fittest gurus from the 1800s.

He's only not wearing the vest in the second photo because that's the FBI not the IRS.

[-] LifeOfChance@lemmy.world 25 points 1 month ago

You gotta wonder though did it cross their minds to just say "IRS please open up!" To see what would happen

[-] afraid_of_zombies@lemmy.world 17 points 1 month ago

They thought about it but were too afraid of the IRS to do it.

[-] RizzRustbolt@lemmy.world 3 points 1 month ago

More likely the TCIS, as they investigate threats against the IRS.

[-] Fontasia@feddit.nl 29 points 1 month ago

You know, of all the things of this post, it's the Roku remote that really confuses me. Was he holding it when he answered the door? Was it in his pocket and he took it out when was looking for phone to make the Tweet?

[-] Kazumara@discuss.tchncs.de 18 points 1 month ago* (last edited 1 month ago)

I think those are two entirely different days, and the second day the friendly neighborhood FBI field office agents brought the printout of the first day with them to confront CoreyPilat over his vague threat towards federal officers.

So the remote being on his kitchen countertop is just random coincidence and does not figure into the continuity between the two posts.

[-] Irelephant@lemm.ee 9 points 1 month ago

The police brought it, it was evidence.

[-] RedEyeFlightControl@lemmy.world 6 points 1 month ago

The remote for the TV in the adjacent room is often in the kitchen, as the tv will be on when I'm cooking.

[-] Passerby6497@lemmy.world 5 points 1 month ago

There might be a TV just out of frame on the left. I've known so many people who have a TV of some kind in the kitchen/prep area.

Well on the bright side I am sure this person has a bunch of new followers on X. Granted most of them are trying to build a criminal case against him for further profoundly dumb posts but still. All publicity is good publicity

[-] psycho_driver@lemmy.world 5 points 1 month ago

The Inevitable Vest

[-] ICastFist@programming.dev 4 points 1 month ago

Somehow, I imagined this conversation between mr. jeeniuz and the feds:

"It's not bombs, officers, it's just my MJ stash!"

"Oh, so you're drug trafficking"

"Ye-NO!"
