IRS Gives Bonuses to Employees Who Owed Back Taxes and Committed Fraud & Abuse



So what happens to Americans who fraudulently claim unemployment benefits, misuse a company credit card or not pay your taxes, you would be arrested, charged with a crime, no longer allowed to use the hand out program, get reprimanded or fired from your job and have the IRS threaten you, place liens on your property and garnish your wages. What happens to an IRS employee  fraudulently claiming unemployment benefits, misusing government credit cards and failing to pay their taxes … THEY GET BONUSES!!!

When is enough, enough with this out of control rogue agency? The Founding Fathers did not intend a federal government to have federal agencies that acted above the law. It is time for a flat tax so that everyone, and I mean everyone pay their fair share, as well as to end this governmental agency of corruption, cronyism and fear. I wonder if any of the IRS employees who received bonuses and owed back taxes have been audited?

Hypocrisy Meter

A report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration shows that between Oct. 1, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2012, the IRS paid $2.8 million in bonuses to employees cited in the past year for such things as drug use, making violent threats, fraudulently claiming unemployment benefits, misusing government credit cards and — get this — failing to pay their taxes.

The report said more than 1,100 employees who failed to pay their taxes received discretionary awards of more than $1 million in cash bonuses and more than 10,000 hours in extra paid vacation.

At least five employees received performance awards after being disciplined for intentionally under-reporting their tax liabilities for multiples years, paying taxes late and under-reporting income.

Like many companies and government agencies, the IRS sweetens the deal for its employees by giving bonuses based on performance. But at the IRS, breaking the federal tax laws you were hired to enforce and running afoul of other agency rules aren’t considered relevant to performance-based awards.

I guess we are now giving bus drivers who get into accident and police officers with criminal records raises and bonuses too?

      DEMOCRAT IRS SHOULD BE RAIDED AND SHUT DOWN. i would say let’s take to the streets and demand it to be shut down but most of us white folks, conservatives, and republicans have to work every day to pay for all the lazy no good democrats to get their food stamps and welfare to feed their 15 illegitimate kids.

      This is akin to theft by an employee from a company. These people need to be fired and charged with a crime. They are not above the law.

      Good job with the meter.

      A flat tax should be enacted as soon as the votes can be assured in the Congress. The States should use their sales tax agencies to process the tax prior to sending the proper amount to the Federal Government. The IRS should be reduced to a handful of people.
