In the year 2046, tax rates have reached a record high of 96%. These rates have incensed what is left of the working class. Citizens, in order to survive with some semblance of dignity, have devised ways to withhold income from the taxation offices, adopting a “the tax office can’t tax what they don’t know about” attitude. The Rowe Scientific Tax Administration Inspection Bureau has made it their business to be in the position to know EVERYTHING.
Since humans have proven time and time again to be selfish, money-grubbing little creatures, Rowe designed a new type of tax man, one that was incorruptible and flawless, to oversee and enforce the stringent tax laws. Thus were born…THE REVENUE MEN. When one of these super auditors malfunctions and begins its deadly pursuit on an innocent taxpayer. Trapped in a skyscraper, and armed with nothing but the knowledge that he is innocent, Eddie Pacheco must match wits with an insane automaton, ever staying one step ahead, if he wants to stay alive.
