If you guessed "c", you're a winner! (Well, sort of.)

Breaking news:

Today, IRS agents launched a series of pre-dawn raids in Washington in what they called "the biggest roundup of tax cheats in US history". According to an IRS spokesperson, the raids occurred at the White House, Department of Health and Human Services and the Treasury Department. Approximately $7,045,000 was seized in unpaid back taxes, as well as one residence. Three persons have been arrested and charged with income tax evasion. The IRS spokesperson also stated that the conspiracy reached into the highest levels of government.

It has also been reported that force had to be used to effect entry into the White House and Department of Human Services. No force was required at main Treasury since IRS ........already works there.

The IRS also stated that more arrests are expected. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, who oversees the IRS, could not be reached for comment.
