IRS, DOJ Crack Down on Tax Violators

With the April 15 tax filing deadline fast approaching, the DOJ says it is aggressively pursuing tax violators, despite forced spending cuts. Kathryn Keneally, assistant attorney general for the Tax Division, said government prosecutors achieved a 95 percent success rate in all civil and criminal cases they litigated in the past year.
