Citing the need to boost employee morale, the Internal Revenue Service’s new commissioner said Monday that he will pay out millions of dollars in bonuses to agency employees, reversing a decision his predecessor made to save money amid the sequester budget cuts and other belt-tightening last year.

The agency remains under fire for targeting tea party groups, but Commissioner John Koskinen said the bonuses are needed to retain and attract good employees in a time of cutbacks.

“This is money best spent on our existing employees,” he said in an email to agency employees. “The performance award payouts are in recognition of that great work done in very trying circumstances. I firmly believe that this investment in our employees will directly benefit taxpayers and the tax system.”

The move didn’t sit well with congressional critics who have been stupefied by the agency’s targeting of tea party groups and, more recently, proposed rules to crack down on an even broader class of political activities by tax-exempt groups.

You can't make this crap up if you wanted to. Obama blames Fox News for scandals and then they put the final nail in the coffin and have an Obama donor investigate NO WRONG DOING what a shocker and not only do they not fire anyone but they give them bonuses!

WTF!

Oh and they cite the bonuses for last years past work!

Watch Holder's reply carefully. The dirty rat progressive communists have regulated America to death.

The only thing I see different is gay couples stuff and a push for EIC for low incomes even if you don't have kids.

When you e-file a return you get a notice telling you it will take 21 days to process....

That is plain nuts. They already delayed to add stuff. (Oh I also noticed they ask if you have health insurance.) It is scary. What did they do to the tax code? I suspect they take more of our money but no disclosure.

We will never again be a truly free people for so long as we continue to abide the Marxist income tax and the IRS!
