Who let the dogs out? What not to do when the IRS comes a-callin’ — Business Management Daily: Free Reports on Human Resources, Employment Law, Office Management, Office Communication, Office Technology and Small Business Tax Business Management Daily
An IRS employee got more than she bargained for when she went to Lisa Blechman’s home in Santa Clarita, Calif., to tape a summons on the front door. The IRS was conducting an audit of Blechman’s husband’s business. Blechman told the IRS agent that if she did not remove the summons from the door, she would come outside with her dogs. Blechman then opened the front door and released two dogs, including a pit bull, in an attempt to intimidate the IRS employee. The dogs did not run toward the agent, but they frightened her. Blechman was sentenced to two years’ probation for her scary act.
