A Law unto Itself: Power, Politics and the IRS

'“Mr. Burnham is at his best relating anecdotes about government ineptitude, incompetence or pigheadedness . . . The reader will find it hard to put down once he’s begun.” —Wall Street Journal   “Burnham rushed in where most taxpayers fear to tread, and discovers an Internal Revenue Service that often has trouble balancing its own books.” —Time    “Burnham gives the best account yet of how the agency really works. His book should be required reading for every taxpayer.” —Business Journal “Ever since A Law Unto Itself hit Washington, DC bookstores . . . it has been an inside-the-Beltway must-read. It is a stinging study of IRS failings past and present.” —Money   “This is a compelling book, worth your time and attention. Burnham could lead you to new levels of outrage.” —Newsday    “Mr. Burnham is ideally suited for the complex job of exposing what he calls the power and politics of the Federal tax agency . . . The Rise of the Computer State described how powerful computerized bureaucracies are altering the nature of representative democracy. In his new book, A Law Unto Itself, he reveals that tax-information computers are whirring faster than ever, catching innocents as well as felons and, in the process, invading our privacy—unwittingly or deliberately.” —The New York Times'
