It is organized on the web by an angry group of over-taxed, bitter
libertarians. We must do everything we can to stop them. They are

They are going to use freely-available W2 templates, social security
numbers (SSNs), and employer identification numbers (EINs). They
hope to swamp the IRS with their own paperwork.
