My husband practiced tax law here in Austin and had many meetings in the offices that were attacked today. That location is a little known IRS branch
that is mainly used when there is a dispute. It houses some of the worst of the worst rogue agents as well as the best of the best taxpayer advocates
who fight the agents tooth and nail, for free on behalf of the taxpayer. I've been in there at least five times and it has extremely high security
and very little documentation is actually stored there. Everything is scanned and faxed upon receipt, so I don't think his act changed anything for
It was always very forboding for my husband's clients to attend the dispute meetings there, the building is all black, guards everywhere, locked
elevators, scans, etc. One client got so scared when he saw the black fortress that he turned his car around, went home and pretty much hid under his
bed with his cellphone, downing xanax and crying on the phone to my husband.
I'll be happy if they pull that building down, it was a very intense place with lots of bad memories for many people, lives were ruined there daily.
And judging from the damage that the news is showing I might get my wish. I'm glad that so far there have been no casualties, I hope the
unaccounted person took the day off and is safe. And though I can understand Mr. Stack's position I do not agree with his methods.
