  1. IRS Drops Civil Forfeiture CaseRead the original story w/Photo

    May 14, 2015 | WebCPA

    The Internal Revenue Service and the Justice Department have decided to dismiss a case against a North Carolina small business owner from whom they had seized $107,000 in a controversial practice known as civil asset forfeiture. The case involves Lyndon McLellan, the owner of L&M Convenience Mart in Fairmont, N.C. Federal authorities seized the money from his bank account suspecting him of illicit activity based on the pattern of his cash deposits, which he kept under $10,000 after a bank teller advised him and his niece that would help the bank avoid onerous reporting requirements.
