Team Biden’s IRS Reminds Drug Pushers, Thieves to Report Taxable Income

It’s patriotic to pay taxes… and everyone knows how patriotic drug smugglers are.

In one of the more blatantly bizarre directives coming out of the dreaded Swamp would be Publication 17.

Giving all the do’s and don’ts regarding the upcoming tax season, nothing says **out of touch** like a federal bureaucracy gently reminding dope peddlers and thieves to pay their taxes on their ill-gotten gains.

To be totally honest, I thought this was something coming out of the Babylon Bee. But when it comes to the totally clueless Biden crew, nothing;s beyond the bounds of the absurd.

As reported by Patrick Reilly of the New York Post (emphasis mine);

Steal any property or deal any drugs this year? Well, the IRS wants it reported as taxable income.

The Internal Revenue Service is reminding Americans that they must report all of their hard-earned income to be taxed, even if it is the result of criminal activity, according to the bureau’s updated Publication 17 for the 2021 tax season, which offers general guidelines for filing taxes.

If you steal property, you must report its fair market value in your income in the year you steal it unless you return it to its rightful owner in the same year,” the IRS told sticky-fingered Americans.

The agency also reminded those who’ve pocketed any by cash selling narcotics — or through any number of unspecified “illegal activities” — to report their earnings.

“Income from illegal activities, such as money from dealing illegal drugs, must be included in your income on Schedule 1 (Form 1040), line 8z, or on Schedule C (Form 1040) if from your self-employment activity,” the bureau said.

The IRS did not say whether career thieves could deduct work expenses such as ski masks, crowbars and getaway vans on their tax forms.

By the way, in the video below, the New York Post is reporting that Slow Joe very well may be as much as $500,000 delinquent in paying HIS taxes.
