A handful of top executives at the Internal Revenue Service ran up “extremely high travel expenses” in 2011 and 2012, acording to a new report from Treasury Department inspector general J. Russell George.
The report indicates that these executives work primarily in Washington, D.C., but live elsewhere, and fly to Washington routinely. In 2011 and 2012, twelve IRS executives spent over 200 days traveling each year; in some cases, the number of travel days they logged actually exceeded the number of business days in the calendar because they remained in “travel status” on weekends and holidays.
An IRS source tells National Review Online at least two of the executives commuting to D.C. by plane work at the highest echelons of the agency.
