Minnesota Vikings fans will recall that Michael Bennett was our first round draft pick in 2001. He came to us from the University of Wisconsin where he completed a record-setting 40-yard dash in 4.13 seconds. His first year with the Vikings he replaced Roger Smith. His second year with the Vikings he rushed for 1,296 yards and caught 351 receptions for a trip to the Pro Bowl.
Normally when one thinks of tax fraud, one thinks of big crooked deals cooked up by shady characters. One doesn't think of a 52-year-old woman in Duluth misstating her income by less than $7,000 over four separate tax years.
The Internal Revenue Service has more than one problem. Noncompliance, scofflaws, tax evasion, plus plain vanilla tax errors found during random audits of Minnesota taxpayers are just a few of the issues with which the IRS is dealing.
