Umm ... I mean bonuses. $62 billion dollars in bonuses. Because [boohoo] morale is low [/boohoo]. This at a time the IRS is saying it needs more money to carry out it's service extortion and political profiling. In fact, they are whining about their ability to oversee NobamaCare, even though the law appropriated money for 19,000 new IRS agents to do so. Where are they getting this $62 billion for bonuses ? You can actually deserve a bonus if morale is low, ?

At the same time, the IRS was too inept to pay attention to warnings from Microsoft that support for their computers would expire ...

It seems that even employees delinquent on their taxes have received millions in bonuses and in comp time off. Even employees with disciplinary action taken against them were awarded bonuses.

Corruption is corruption.
If a union is involved, say so. If not, leave it out of it. It doesn't take a union for this regime to do something like that.

The union has bonuses negotiated into their contract. And for the most part, management can't pick and choose who gets bonuses because of that. Then, from what I've seen in the agencies I've worked for, Management doles out to Management the rest of the pot of bonus money. Besides the taxpayers being screwed, the non-bargaining unit employees get left with scraps, if anything.

The IRS is indeed unionized. Where bonuses originated from, or the prerequisites required to receive one , I do not know.
The IRS does not want to be included in ObamaCare. I think much of the IRS's targeting of conservative 501(c)(4) was union driven.

Must have been a slow year. They paid out $70 mill in 2013 bonuses for work done in 2012.

Currently:

The bonuses will amount to about 1 percent of pay — less than the 1.75 percent rate of previous bonuses.

Agency officials said they will pay $43.4 million to employees represented by labor unions and $19.1 million to other employees, for a total of $62.5 million in bonuses for 2013.

They said the amount is lower than the $89.1 million paid out in 2012.

Seems like not paying your taxes isn't an issue as long as you are an Obama supporter. Of those who received the bonuses for their partisan activities, 1 Million was paid out to 1,100 were in hot water over tax delinquency, and a further 2.8 million to those facing disciplinary action at work. I can't believe there isn't more of an uproar over this. The recent actions of the IRS under guidance of Obama have been criminal.

Only a 1000X off. You're qualified to be an IRS agent, Cliff!

Looks like my agency just calculated $100 bonus for all employees minus 10. I'm guessing the 10 empoyees subtracted out of the calculations are the managers and the non-bargaining unit employees (Non-union....That would be me and a co-worker.... the two lowest paid employees in the facility. How's that for a morale booster!) I'm not upset in the least over not getting a bonus. I just shake my head over a bonus of $100 given to someone who makes $120,000-$180,000/yr. That $8,000 could have been spent on better things within the agency.
