THE HEADLINE SAYS "IRS LOSES A BIG ONE." And they sure did. On Friday a jury in Memphis acquitted FedEx pilot Vernice Kuglin of six counts of felony Tax Evasion and Willful Failure to File a tax return. She said she'd been asking the IRS for years to tell her what law required her to pay taxes, and of course they never did.
Kuglin's attorneys were Robert Bernhoft and the awesome Larry Becraft. After the jury had been dismissed, the prosecutor asked the judge to order Kuglin to pay her taxes and the judge apparently replied, "Sir, I don't work for the IRS."
Haven't seen such good tax news since The Amazing Becraft got a similar judgment in the Lloyd Long case, back in the early 1990s.
