Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Charles Grassley yesterday issued a press release "urging detractors of the private debt collection program to consider facts, including disciplinary action against IRS employees and the IRS’ own poor track record of collecting the $345 billion of owed taxes known as the tax gap":
The IRS took 2,366 disciplinary actions out of 99,022 employees from Jan. 1, 2007, to Jan. 30, 2007. The IRS took 2,185 disciplinary actions out of 94,696 employees from July 1, 2007, to Dec. 31, 2007. Please note these are formal disciplinary actions, not pending cases. In other words, the IRS took disciplinary action against 2.3% of its workforce last year.
