Happy Tax Day: IRS Just Wasted over $8 Million on Public Polling and Office Furniture

As America enters into the last day to file their 2014 taxes, lets take a quick look at how the Internal Revenue Service is wasting our money, shall we?

Patrick Howley gives us a quick report on some of the millions that the IRS wastes on needless expenses.

1) $4.3 million spent on “market research” and “public opinion” polling;

2) Over $8,000 spent on a “fitness equipment stair climber;”

3) Thousands of dollars spent on “decorative and give-a way items,” such as plush animals, toy footballs, and “kazoos, bathtub toy boats, and Thomas the Tank Engine rubber wristbands, for managers’ meetings.”; and

4) Nearly $4 million spent on office furniture

And this is just a small, small slice of the waste.
