Watchdog Report Finds that 1,100 IRS Employees Who Owe Back Taxes Were Awarded Bonuses

In the Obama administration, people who cheat on their taxes and own thousands to the government are rewarded with high profile cabinet appointments. So it’s no surprise really that low-level IRS employees are similarly rewarded when they owe back taxes.

IRS employees who had been disciplined for tax and conduct issues were nonetheless rewarded with monetary awards or time off, according to a watchdog report released Tuesday.

The report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration found that while for the most part the reward program for IRS workers complied with federal regulations, employees who had themselves failed to pay their federal taxes and had discipline problems were also rewarded.

… The watchdog found that in the period from October 1, 2010 to December 31, 2012 over 2,800 employees who had been disciplined for conduct problems, including issues with federal tax compliance, had received over $2.8 million in monetary awards and over 27,000 hours in time-off awards.

Such blatant government waste certainly explains the state of our treasury right now. But of course, the agencies actually throwing money away aren’t the ones to pay the piper, are they?
