One Would Think

In a case like this, Anti-Tax Author Gets 13 Years in Prison, wouldn't the government want to put to rest all issues raised and clearly point out where the IRS has been given authority to collect taxes? Or, in most cases, to force business to collect taxes for the federal government?

Did the government make their case? No. In fact they didn't even attempt to. They instead did what they have come to rely on to continue to hold up this show, they used the power gained at the point of a gun. From another source:

Schiff is the author of "The Federal Mafia: How the Government Illegally Imposes and Unlawfully Collects Income Taxes" a book the government has banned as fraudulent commercial speech.

Banning "fraudulent" "commercial" speech. And the quote of the story goes to the judge:

"Thousands of tax returns, millions and maybe billions of dollars lost,..." "...He took their money and left them holding the bag."

By the way, this is a description of one man, (not our current federal government which spends $87,836 a second!) Were you left holding your "second" or just another empty bag?

At least Schiff didn't hold a gun to our head to only leave us with an empty bag.
