How is the IRS handling misconduct among its employees? The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) just took a look. A TIGTA audit showed that the IRS consistently used a “Conduct Case Closure Checklist” to address previously reported issues in 85 of 86 randomly selected cases. However, “misconduct was not always addressed timely,” TIGTA said, citing delayed action in 25% of cases. “TIGTA determined that unresponsive managers, staffing issues, and employee challenges to proposed disciplinary actions caused case delays,” up to 827 days, instead of the required 180-day period. The IRS is testing options to correct the delays. Here’s the full audit: Call or visit our website for more information!
