IRS Guilty of Questionable Hiring and Rehiring Practices
How confident are you that the IRS is going to handle your tax return properly? Even if you’ve already filed, this latest news could affect you. According to new reports, the IRS apparently used some questionable hiring practices as it prepared to begin reviewing the roughly 150 million individual tax returns it expected to receive this year.
According to The Washington Times, the tax agency actually rehired hundreds of employees who have less-than-admirable records with the agency. Many of these employees’ who previously worked for the IRS had bad performance records. In fact, more than 140 employees that worked for the IRS previously had even messed up on their own personal tax returns. There were other rehires that had looked at private tax information in their previous positions.
Meanwhile, the IRS even rehired five people that they knew had purposely not filed their own tax returns in the last two years. Last, but not least, one former employee, who took an unapproved eight-week vacation, was also rehired. This occurred, despite the fact that this former employee’s supervisor actually wrote a note that stated: “do not rehire.”
Despite these questionable hiring practices, the IRS claims that it follows proper hiring guidelines and that it already has the capability to take care of these situations as it works to find, and let go of, the poor and otherwise questionable performers.
While the IRS attempts to fix issues on its end, you need to make sure that your return is done right, which could possibly make a difference in preventing incompetent IRS employees from botching your tax refund.
