Does IRS violate 4 USC 72 with offices outside D.C.?

Chris Chapman withstood questioning by the Federal Grand Jury in Central Florida a few years ago, and presented evidence and arguments to the jurors about the fact that Congress had never enacted a law permitting the IRS to operate its office outside Washington D.C., and inside the several states.  He pointed to an act of Congress permitting the IRS office in Puerto Rico, so the Congress did not merely overlook the matter. He alleged that the IRS operation of offices in the several states violates 4 USC 72 (" All offices attached to the seat of government shall be exercised in the District of Columbia, and not elsewhere, except as otherwise expressly provided by law.").

In the end, the grand jury did not indict Chris, but it did indict his associates. See the order regarding Joe Saladino here. It explains:

"On December 20, 2007, a grand jury indicted Defendants Joseph Oquendo Saladino, Richard Allen Fuselier, Marcel Roy Bendshadler, Michael Sean Mungovan, and Richard J. Ortt on one count of Conspiracy to Defraud in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 371."

Roy spent over a year in federal prison for an ensuing conviction.  You might recall my writing on 7 November 2009 that someone, probably at the behest of the IRS/DOJ, murdered Roy's public defender, a DOJ attorney named Nancy Bergeson, on the night the jury convicted him and Nancy protested the jury tampering aloud in court.  Someone showed her the true nature of tampering.

Tax Crime Public Defender Bergeson Dead - You may now Scream Bloody Murder!

Apparently Chris impressed the grand jury with his information and argument.  They left him alone.

I have attached a brief regarding 4 USC 72.  You may also read it at the following web page.
