Class Action against IRS 1040 "Virtual Currency" Question for Illegal Targeting

Bitcoin Reddit

Reddit / Bitcoin Reddit 10 Views

Just wondering, I don't know anything about legal stuff but what would it take to file a class action lawsuit against the IRS for the "Virtual Currency" question that seems to be targeting a very specific class of people (Cryptocurrency holders) with zero bearing on the amount of taxes due?

It seems the question may open a person up to additional scrutiny, and there is a lot of political reasons for Cryptocurrency advocates to be under this additional scrutiny as many are affiliated with economic libertarian views (many similarities to the Tea Party targeting).

The answer to the question doesn't seem to affect the actual dollar amounts in any way. And a tax return is not a census or survey.

Is there some advocate organization that could help? The Tea Party group successfully won against the IRS for the illegal targeting that happened in 2017.
