13. Why have you made such a guess as to his situation?

What makes you say this has anything to do with the earned income credit?

Did you see what the US attorney offered to do - keep half of McLellan's money if he'll shut up and go away?

In February 2015, during a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways & Means Oversight Subcommittee, North Carolina Congressman George Holding told IRS Commissioner John Koskinen that heíd reviewed Lyndonís caseówithout specifically naming itóand that there was no allegation of the kind of illegal activity required by the IRSís new policy. The IRS Commissioner responded, ďIf that cases exists, then itís not following the policy.Ē

When news of the IRS Commissionerís statement got back to the United States Attorney in charge of Lyndonís case, he advised Lyndonís attorney and accountant that he was ďconcernedĒ that Lyndonís case document was provided to Congress, and that:

Whoever made (the document) public may serve their own interest but will not help this particular case. Your client needs to resolve this or litigate it. But publicity about it doesnít help. It just ratchets up feelings in the agency. My offer is to return 50% of the money. The offer is good until March 30th COB
.
Under these new policies, the government should not be pursuing forfeiture of Lyndonís bank account. But the government has refused to back down, and is actively pursuing the forfeiture of Lyndonís money.

The poor agency and their hurt feelings! They fully deserve that $53,851.33 for the way the publicity has make them feel! That they have not charged him with anything must just show there is something else going on here - mustn't it?
