this section shall be applied by substituting "felony" for "misdemeanor",and "5 years" for "1 year".
26 USC 7203
Now, I know that looks and sounds real simple, and real scary, but read it carefully, and then read
Section 7343 from this chapter.
Furthermore, the Published Regulations, which are required by 44 U.S.C. 1505.
Documents To Be Published..., for general public applicability for this Code Section, fail to show any applicability to
Title 26, but rather, either remain totally unpublished (thereby remaining applicable only to Federal Employees)
or show applicability only within Title 27, in regards to alcohol, tobacco & firearms activities, not Title 26 !
