This is not the way to resolve an audit

Just wow.

From the link:

A Florida man has been sentenced to 30 years in prison for hiring a hit man to murder an Internal Revenue Service employee who was auditing him and his construction business.

U.S. District Judge James S. Moody Jr. sentenced Randy Nowak, 50, of Mulberry, Fla., on Thursday. He was convicted of attempted murder in December (see Man Convicted of Plotting to Kill IRS Agent).

Nowak hired a hit man, who was actually an undercover FBI agent, to kill the IRS employee because she was investigating Nowak’s individual and business tax liabilities. The IRS was investigating him after he was taped saying that he had hidden more than $3 million over the past eight years.

Last July, Nowak met with an undercover FBI agent and gave him $10,000 as a down payment to kill the IRS employee. During the meeting, Nowak identified a picture of his intended victim and asked the undercover agent if he would be willing to burn down the IRS office in Lakeland because Nowak wanted his tax problems to “go away.”
