Tax Attorney in Oregon or Washington; Does Your Small Business Have One?

Tax Evasion has been used to criminalize many, Nixon did use the IRS to attack political opponents and to discredit them. Well here is one politician who is attacking the LOCAL small businesses who supposedly are evading taxes? Are they? Or is the miss management of the city coming to light and the politicians are looking for a scapegoat?

http://www.bizjournals.com/portland/stories/2004/03/01/daily19.html?f=et75

We ll there is a clause we should be familiar with and that is Taxation without representation. I would like to point out that if a person has a small business which they do out of their homes and they offer their services, such as house cleaning, window cleaning, general fixer upper, scrap book consulting and supplies, Amway, then in fact those individuals which are averaging about 12% of the population in Portland should be able to enjoy the right to free contract without grandstanding SOBs calling them tax evaders on a city business license issue.

First of all The Great City of Portland has other problems, such as crime, drugs and the second highest unemployment regions of the country. Many small upstart businesses do not have the $70.00 fee? (I am presuming since I do not live in that fine city although enjoy the visits along the river). In this article, "Joe Politician", Mr. Wonderful can do no wrong (Yah right he is a politician) says that those businesses that fail to pay their city license will be brought to justice? Spare me the BS, what justice? It will bring the city 4 million in revenue? So what? They blow that on their wasteful parties to honor themselves in the city council events? This is just political rhetoric and trying to send the sound and fury elsewhere to keep the heat off yourself. This is sickening.

Generally there are already too many fees, licenses, taxes, etc at every level of the blob of bureaucracy you turn and every level of government you study. So are we to listen to this, or recall his ass. I move that all small businesses immediately band together to recall this jerk (opinion). People forced out of work from bad policy and over regulation and a bizarre liberal attitude of the left wing in Portland and the whole state for that matter, deserve nothing for their squealing. City Council People of Portland hardly produce a damn thing, their infrastructure is crumbling, their sewer pipes are breaking, their bridges are corroding, their police force cannot keep up with the drugs, the transportation system is a joke and this guy wishes to attack small, home based businesses which some are lucky if they take in any money at all and other maybe a $200 per week? Gee Whiz if that does not spit in the face of free enterprise?

Any politician who attacks small business should be thrown out on his ears, we employ over two-thirds of all Americans. Dah? Loser politician attorney in Portland, ought to know better. Think on it.
