An audit of the IRS by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (yes sometimes the IRS gets audited also) found that the agency embroiled in scandals has awarded millions of dollars worth of government contracts to seventeen contracts who were delinquent in paying their taxes. Isn't that something they should check before they award contracts? They have the data. And with all the scandals and bad press the IRS has been getting, wouldn't one think they would would make sure there were no other "mistakes?"
According to Judicial Watch, during a two-year period the IRS awarded 57 contracts worth nearly $19 million to 17 corporations that owed federal taxes during that period, according to a report released recently by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA). In doing this, the IRS actually violated a 2012 federal law called the Consolidated Appropriations Act prohibiting government agencies from using appropriated funds to enter into a contract with a company that has certain federal tax debt or felony convictions.
