UNEARNED REWARDS

Posted

The U.S. Treasury Department's inspector general for tax administration, in his latest report on agency employee bonuses in April (covering late 2010-’12), disclosed that $2.8 million of the high-performance prizes went to employees with discipline problems, including about 1,150 workers who owe about $1 million in back federal taxes. The inspector general acknowledged the bonuses "appear to create a conflict" regarding the "integrity" of the program. The Treasury Department pointed out the Department's rate of tax delinquencies is only about one-eighth that of the whole United States.
