A Muslim couple from Somalia living in Omaha, Nebraska alleged that IRS officers harassed the wife, whose identity is withheld upon her request. The incident took place on May 3, just 2 days after the death of Osama bin Laden. In the complaint filed by the couple, they allege that on that day, IRS officers barged into their apartment and threatened the wife using Bin Laden’s name.

According to the woman, when she opened the door for the officers, they entered and began asking her a series of questions. The Somali woman, whose husband is under IRS investigation, said the officers told her, “If you work with us, we can help you,” to which she replied, “I’m not in trouble, why do you want to help me out?”
