IRS Rehires Hundreds of Employees Fired for Fraud, Theft, Abusing Taxpayer Data

IRS Rehires Hundreds of Employees Fired for Fraud, Theft, Abusing Taxpayer Data:

The Inspector General for Tax Administration has discovered that under Commissioner John Koskinen, the Internal Revenue Service re-hired 212 employees it had previously fired for offenses including tax evasion, theft, and abuse of taxpayer data.

The title of the report makes it clear that the IRS “continues to rehire former employees with conduct and performance issues.” The inspection was requested by a U.S. Senator, who is not named in the report, although Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) introduced legislation to block the agency from rehiring such employees shortly after the report was released.
