Auto workers in Michigan staging income-tax revolt

Thousands of angry auto workers are claimng up to 99 dependents each or refusing to file income tax withholding forms at all in a growing tax revolt the Internal Revenue Service is finding nearly impossible to stop. The grass-roots movement has spread in and around auto plants from Flint to Detroit. Most protesters are employed by the General Motors Corporation, and many are white-collar workers.

The IRS manager of criminal investigations in Flint has estimated that at least 3,500 workers are falsifying their tax forms or not filing at all. While the IRS is threatening to strike back with its entire legal arsenal, the manager conceded the large number of protesters will make prosecutions difficult.
