IRS: Stupid AND Thuggish

The Ms. Lerner (criminal-with-pension-and-benefits) crowd at IRS could have spent their budgets on better things than the TEA Party, no?

The Internal Revenue Service sent 655 tax refunds to a single address in Kaunas, Lithuania — failing to recognize that the refunds were likely part of an identity theft scheme. Another 343 tax refunds went to a single address in Shanghai, China.

Thousands more potentially fraudulent refunds — totaling millions of dollars — went to places in Bulgaria, Ireland and Canada in 2011.

In all, a report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration today found 1.5 million potentially fraudulent tax returns that went undetected by the IRS, costing taxpayers $3.2 billion.

IRS says that they fixed all the problems.

Wanna bet another $Billion or so?

"Wanna bet another $Billion or so?"

We can easily make that up in food stamp cuts.

Maybe if people were willing to pay for the necessary number of auditors this would be less likely to happen.

Maybe if there were less tax refunds--because there were less taxes, and maybe if one paid one's taxes with a form the size of a postcard, ....
