As the 2011 tax season draws to a close today, it has come to the attention of Senator Scott Brown from Massachusetts that some of America’s citizenry aren’t as compliant with our country’s tax laws as the rest of us over-burdened taxed-to-death suckers. And surprise, surprise, over 98,000 of these tardy tax dodgers turn out to be federal employees.
To remedy this flagrant governmental malfeasance, Senator Brown has introduced a bill that would make it easier for the IRS to collect back taxes from these federal freeloaders.
The bill would require members and employees of Congress and federal employees who file financial disclosures forms to report any delinquent tax liability to the appropriate ethics office and come up with a plan to pay off the taxes.
Those who fail to arrange a payment plan with the IRS within a year could have those back taxes taken directly out of their wages. My Fox Boston
