Being that I happen to owe back taxes right now and am waiting on my offer in compromise to be approved, I would love nothing more than to fight the whole thing in court using that very argument. I applaud people who have the courage and conviction to stand up to the IRS and to make waves like that. But honestly those people scare the hell out of me, and I know what they are capable of. The amount that I owe isnt enough to cause me to act in such a way. Doing so would only be a metter of principle, and to be honest I have enough problems without having my bank account levied or my property seized.
Bottom line is they have you by the jewels and they know it.

Wesley Snipes, race aside, is not unlike every other red-blooded American, he doesn't want to pay for something he's not legally required to pay for. In actuality it's safer for a high-profile person such as Snipes to take on the IRS because the publicity surrounding him is somewhat of a safety net from retribution (i.e. whacking or being holed up in your house, under siege by federal agents) by the government. So what do you do if you're the IRS, you play the ace up your sleeve and destroy his high-profile career.
Everyone can be gotten to.
