The Southern Poverty Law Center's Intelligence Project counts five known domestic terrorist plots against the IRS in the past 15 years. Tensions are rising as federal tax authorities have begun stepping up collection efforts in the midst of flagging tax receipts.

Itís not just conservatives, either. Part of the tax resistance movement is left-wing resisters who donít want their tax money spent on foreign wars..."
plus the fact that these groups are political parties - which I beleive is in violation of 5013c (in some way - not an expert)
I thought you were saying it was about tax aversion/evasion.
