SUNSHINE vs. IRS….Readers with good memories will recall a post from a few months ago about Susan Long, a Syracuse professor who has been tracking the IRS since 1976 and publishing analyses of how thoroughly they audit big corporations and the rich. A couple of years ago the IRS suddenly decided to stop providing the data despite the fact that they were under court order to do so.

Long sued, and you’ll be glad to know that on Monday a federal judge ruled in her favor. Unless the IRS stonewalls some more, the data will begin flowing once again.
