IRS Condones Employees’ Criminal Activities

Posted by taxguru on August 1, 2017

It’s not bed enough that such IRS miscreants as Lois Lerner and John Koskinen have never faced any legal consequences for their blatant illegal activities while working at the IRS, there is this news item that IRS is rehiring employees who had been fired for criminal actions while working for IRS.

IRS Rehired Employees That Falsified Documents, Had Unauthorized Access to Taxpayer Information 

We all know that IRS has been suffering from low manpower due to attrition and budget restrictions, but are they this desperate for worker bees that they ignore and excuse prior criminal actions? What message does this send to other IRS employees, the tax practitioner community, as well as the American TaxPayers?  It is nothing less than  insane.

Update: Rush Limbaugh discussed this issue in his Morning Update on 8/7/17.
