NONDISCLOSABLE

Stanley Scherr, an unscrupulous tax attorney, who is the subject of disciplinary action by the IRS, becomes involved in a crime. IRS officials discover evidence that implicates the lawyer in this crime. However, the evidence is contained in audit files which cannot be disclosed because the information is protected by the IRS’s strict rules and procedures governing taxpayer confidentiality. As police detectives are precluded by law from obtaining confidential taxpayer information, the criminal investigation will be unsolved.

However, IRS officials are determined to seek retribution and in this respect, will turn to a legendary IRS agent for help. In addition, the FBI will join the IRS in its criminal investigation of the unethical lawyer and his clients, culminating in multiple criminal conspiracies when the lawyer becomes involved in international transactions having tax avoidance and tax evasion implications.

Before long, the unprincipled lawyer will see his tax practice implode and he will find himself charged with various criminal offenses along with his associate, a noted tax cheat pursued by the FBI in a massive tax evasion case. In a truly ironic reversal of justice, the only tax case in which a verdict has been awarded in favor of the lawyer will be set aside and re-tried when it becomes evident that someone manipulated the jury.

Will the corrupt attorney finally discover that crime does not pay?


FULL DISCLOSURE

Stanley Scherr, an unethical tax lawyer prominently featured in NONDISCLOSABLE, will finally receive a long overdue present from the Department of Justice. Stanley will go off to prison for tax evasion.

Simultaneously, the Justice Department is prosecuting a related tax evasion case which involves the largest individual tax cheat in history. However, before this case is concluded, it will lead to the criminal investigation of another related tax evasion case and implicate an individual who was once the most powerful man in the United States and one of the most influential figures in the world. The consequences of this investigation soon take a deadly turn.

Before the criminal investigation can be completed, potential witnesses will suffer a horrible fate. To ensure a successful prosecution, law enforcement authorities must utilize extreme measures and make difficult decisions that involve the art of deal making with a notorious figure.

FULL DISCLOSURE will take the reader on a wild ride through our criminal justice system and through a series of twists and turns. Will those guilty of criminal offenses will eventually be brought to justice? This book illustrates how, through a set of unique circumstances, one case can impact another unrelated case in a truly ironic twist of fate.


DEN OF THIEVES

Imagine a bribery conspiracy, fraud, deception, abuse of power, and illicit sex. Now imagine that this is taking place within the IRS.

As the IRS continues with its criminal investigations, the Department of Justice is pursuing criminal prosecutions of those guilty of tax crimes. While this is taking place, a shocking discovery will be made that undermines the integrity of the IRS.

IRS employees responsible for the administration of the tax laws are discovered to be guilty of manipulating the tax system in a plot so ingenious that only one intrepid IRS agent can solve the mystery. However, while he is dealing with this problem, he must also match wits with a brilliant sociopath who is now behind bars.

IRS officials will later learn of a second bribery conspiracy that is equally shocking and controversial. The Justice Department has decided that for justice to be achieved, the mastermind of the criminal conspiracy must be brought to justice.

Revenue Agent Louie Lipschitz makes his triumphant return in DEN of THIEVES. But, can even he overcome all of the challenges in his path so that the guilty can be brought to justice?


REVERSAL OF JUSTICE

While serving a prison sentence upon being found guilty of defrauding the IRS, Erica Whitman is plotting her revenge against the federal government. With the help of her co-defendant, Erica schemes to have her conspiracy conviction overturned and be exonerated of her upcoming tax evasion trial.

It is as if Erica has just won the lottery when she is asked to help someone in dire need of assistance. Crafting a diabolical strategy that will guarantee her instant wealth, Erica sets upon a scheme to extract revenge against federal prosecutors, while further conspiring to deprive the IRS of taxes that the agency is legally owed.

It is up to Justice Department and IRS officials to once again deal with an ingenious criminal mastermind whose greed and thirst for revenge is endless. At the same time, the IRS finds itself taking on numerous colorful characters who are determined to challenge its authority, while the police deal with murder contracts placed on the head of Louie Lipschitz, a legendary IRS agent who has incurred the wrath of more than a few of these characters.


FRAUDULENT INTENT

The year is 1986 and Louie Lipschitz’s career at the IRS has just begun. Within a relatively short period of time, Louie has played an instrumental role in the dismissal of a succession of audit managers whom Louie found to be morally corrupt and grossly incompetent. When not plotting the termination of his supervisors, Louie has quickly established a reputation as the best field agent in the IRS.


Working on a series of high profile fraud cases, Louie has become the lead investigator in a political corruption case motivated by fraudulent intent that defies belief. In spite of the headlines emanating from this case, Louie’s highest profile case involves his investigation of a former IRS trial attorney who has gone into the business of brokering foreign arms sales in which fifty million dollars had been secretly deposited in various foreign bank accounts under fictitious names used by a slippery lawyer whose fraudulent intent and greed seems endless.



OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE

A Tax Court judge with a personal vendetta against the federal government has ruled against the IRS in a succession of trials which the tax agency should have easily won. Frustrated with a federal judge serving a fifteen year term on the bench, the IRS decides to take the necessary action to have the judge removed from the bench. However, before impeachment proceedings commence, the judge will make startling rulings that further bewilder courtroom observers. This will eventually lead to a stunning conclusion cloaked in the ultimate irony.

At the same time, the IRS must deal with a far more sinister problem that involves a group of criminals in prison for tax evasion and other crimes now receiving millions of dollars from the tax agency. Fraudulent income tax returns are being filed around the clock in federal prisons, with tax refunds routed to off-shore bank accounts in tax haven countries. With IRS officials stymied as to how to prevent a group of criminals from manipulating the filing of electronic returns, the agency turns to the one person best qualified to tackle this problem. But is this a task too great for even Louie Lipschitz?
