About Former IRS Special Agent Joe Banister
During some of the worst days of IRS persecution against Joe, when publicity of the agency's persecution efforts reached the local and national papers, he realized some of the teenagers in his younger son’s 8th grade class, as well as their parents, were wondering what all this “Joe vs. the IRS” discussion was about. Joe prepared an explanatory letter with exhibits and mailed it to the household of each classmate’s parents in the hope of providing them with a little more background to the story. The letter is very detailed and it provides a fairly comprehensive auto-biography of Joe's journey through life up to and including the criminal trial in June, 2005, where he was deservedly acquitted of the outrageous and false charges leveled against him. The letter is here.
