The IRS Scandal, Day 1319:  How Will The Koskinen Saga End?

IRS Logo 2Going Concern, Accounting News Roundup:

One of the more colossal wastes of time this past year has been the effort by some House Republicans to impeach IRS commissioner John Koskinen. They were dealt a blow earlier this week when the full House voted overwhelmingly to send the matter to the Judiciary Committee.

From here it could a couple of ways: Koskinen ends up serving the rest of his term which ends in 2017 or he could be forced out after ugh Donald Trump becomes president. In a fun twist, however, Trump and Koskinen have a bit of a history. Politico's Morning Tax pointed to a New York Times article from 1975 where the two were on opposite sides of a couple real estate deals. This leaves the door open to...maybe Trump reappointing Koskinen? It's probably a longshot, but it would almost make all this worth it.

Being on the opposite side of Donald Trump is not necessarily a reason to want to work for the man.
