Occasionally, we like to remind taxpayers that it was the U.S. Treasury Department Internal Revenue Service that finally prosecuted and imprisoned noted Chicago gangster-kingpin, Alphonse Gabriel Capone - for tax evasion, no doubt. Without embellishment, it was the greatest single act of law enforcement since the creation of the income tax. Since the beginning of the new millennium, government prosecutions of those who commit tax fraud have been overwhelmingly successful. But as we all know today's IRS just doesn't have the manpower or budgetary resources to go after everyone who cheats - but that could soon change.
