This also falls under state tax code as well. The irs does not have to get involved, until evidence of state tax evasion is discovered, then by law, then have to investigate. Remember, that states have their own sales, income, and service taxes. California and Florida are the worst, and those are where CO$ has its big operations. Remember, the goal of the project is not to remove tax exempt status, but to tie CO$ up legally while they are being sued on multiple fronts. This is in fact, an act of trolling engineered to bother Co$ and maybe the IRS. This may result in an extreme diminish in osa activities. The American Tax code is horrible. It is too big, and if someone digs deep enough, they can find a way for you to get into trouble and owe money. Co$ has a lot of money and does a lot of things, so it should not be too hard to catch them with an expensive tax liability.
