Questions raised about IRS executive travel

Posted by on Jul 24, 2013 at 8:11 am

An IRS source told me the most frequent travelers were four different officials inside the tax agency who “work” in Washington, at IRS headquarters, but actually live in Dallas, Minneapolis and Atlanta.

In other words, they fly to and from Washington, D.C. by plane, and bill the taxpayer for that travel – and it is not a temporary situation, but has been going on for years.

One IRS official, labeled “Executive B” in the report, traveled to Washington, D.C. a total of 282 days in Fiscal Year 2012, claiming almost $127,000 in travel costs. (That’s $450/day if you do the math.)

In FY 2011, “Executive B” traveled to Washington 238 days, with total travel costs of almost $116,000.

“In such cases, the cost and frequency of travel indicate that some executives may not live in the best location to economically accomplish their roles and responsibilities,” the report noted.

“Executive C” spent 213 days in Washington in FY 2011 at a cost of just over $105,000.

More examples from that same year include “Executive A” spending 290 days in Washington for $88,951 in expenses; “Executive G” spent 193 days in Washington for $86,433 in costs.

Full story.
