The owner of a rural North Carolina convenience store is fighting back after the IRS seized his bank account of more than $107,000 under civil forfeiture laws targeting drug lords and terrorists.

Fox 8 (http://myfox8.com/2015/05/02/irs-seizes-107k-from-small-nc-business-owner-despite-policy-changes/) reports Lyndon McLellan has been accused of structuring cash deposits to avoid bank reporting requirements. He takes in lots of cash running the L&M Convenience Mart in Fairmont, N.C. The mart includes a gas station and a lunch counter. The IRS has not accused him of any crime.
“It took 13 years to get it and less than 13 seconds, I guess, to take it away,” the 50-year-old says in a video on the Fox 8 website that his lawyers at the Institute for Justice, a libertarian public interest law firm, produced.
McLellan aroused IRS suspicion with cash deposits of less than $10,000. He said he is not a criminal, just someone who has worked hard all his life.
“To make this kind of money selling soft drinks, cigarettes, and hot dogs somebody’s got to work,” he says in the video. “It wasn’t handed to us. It was taken from us. But it wasn’t handed to us.”

This is today's IRS, the little o be damned. They have been doing this with no court action, no warrants and no legal base for at least the last 25 years I know of. They have been slapped down over and over but it costs them nothing, they just give the money back - 6-8-10 months, a year later with no interest, excuse me, sorry 'bout that or ESAD.
