Get bent, tax man!
Randy Nowak is the owner of a construction company in Florida. He was being audited by the IRS and was understandably freaked out by the possibility of owing $300,000 in back taxes. So he hired a hitman to take out the IRS agent auditing him.
Trouble is, the hitman Nowak gave $20,000 to was actually an undercover FBI agent.
Oh, and Nowak wasn’t just freaked about owing back taxes — allegedly, he was worried the Feds would find $4 million he had hidden in various offshore accounts.
You know, he might get a jury to sympathize with his desire to kill the tax man if it wasn’t for that whole $4 million business. Too bad.
