Download a preview of Investigating The Federal Income Tax: A Preliminary Report. This preview contains the first chapter only. This report was prepared by Joseph R. Banister, who graduated in 1986 from San Jose State University with a Bachelor's Degree in Accounting. He spent three years at KPMG Peat Marwick on their professional staff as a senior tax specialist and staff auditor. He then spent nearly two years in the venture capital industry during which time he became a licensed Certified Public Accountant (CPA) in the State of California. Mr. Banister left public practice as a CPA in 1993 when he accepted appointment as a Special Agent (criminal investigator) in the Department of the Treasury, IRS Criminal Investigation Division (IRS-CID). Unable to resolve conflicts between the way the IRS administered the Federal Income Tax and Mr. Banister's oath of office, he resigned from IRS-CID on February 25, 1999.
