Have you ever received a bonus at work? It’s awesome when it happens, isn’t it?
Did you know that the IRS pays bonuses or awards to its employees? Well, it does.
If an IRS employee meets certain criteria, that individual can earn a bonus or award from the IRS.
Recent legislation has been introduced to prevent the IRS from issuing bonus awards to its employees in the future. “Federal employees who have disciplinary problems or who haven’t paid their taxes shouldn’t be getting bonuses,” said Senator Ayotte (R-N.H.) in a statement announcing The Stop Wasteful Federal Bonuses Act. The proposed legislation was introduced by Sens. Kelly Ayotte and Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) on April 28, 2014.
