Yep, and they're still sort of around (see post #26). The group has definitely splintered, but the original group still owns their compound. I hadn't heard about tax issues, although like I mentioned, they can always sell off a chunk of land if they're in trouble. They got some guff from the feds regarding their weapons stockpile, but that was true of pretty much everyone in 1990's Montana.
