Nonsequitur: More IRS Rule Breaking

April 24, 2014

According to a report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration:

(B)etween October 1, 2010 and December 31, 2012, more than 2,800 employees with recent substantiated conduct issues resulting in disciplinary action received more than $2.8 million in monetary awards and more than 27,000 hours in time-off awards. Among these, more than 1,100 IRS employees with substantiated Federal tax compliance problems received more than $1 million in cash awards and more than 10,000 hours in time-off awards.

In other words, our tax dollars went to pay for bonuses for IRS employees who broke the law. These same actions by private citizens would result in audits, fines, penalties and perhaps jail time. But government officials can break the law, and they not only get away with it, they are rewarded.
