My 2 Cents: IRS Tells Congress It Has Lost Thousands Of E-mails

My 2 Cents: IRS Tells Congress It Has Lost Thousands Of E-mails. My 2 Cents: IRS Tells Congress It Has Lost Thousands Of E-mails.

I watched the latest IRS hearing tonight, and it left me with this question.

If the IRS audited your tax return, had doubts about the deductions you claimed, and you told them you didn't have the records to back up them because your computer crashed, or you couldn't afford a filing cabinet to keep your receipts organized, what do you think the IRS would do at that point?

Do you think they'd accept your tax return as is? Of course not.

You'd probably be punished through a higher tax bill with penalties.

Well, that's kind of what the IRS brass is trying to pull off in Washington.

They're suddenly telling Congress they've now lost thousands of e-mails, including some that might pertain to the investigation of the IRS targeting conservative groups.

And they're saying it's basically because they have an antiquated computer system that crashed several hard drives just days after investigators asked for the records.

It's hard, almost impossible to believe, but top IRS officials want the American people to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Ironic isn't it?

I'm Kelly Ogle and that's My 2 Cents.
