IRS Employee Charged with Embezzlement
An IRS employee was charged with the embezzlement of government funds, after going on a shopping spree on Amazon, using government-issued credit cards.
The employee had worked for the IRS since 2000, and began making these purchases between 2009 and 2013 – according to the criminal complaint filed. A routine audit by the Treasury Inspector General, last December, uncovered some of these purchases; prompting them to look back further and uncover the rest.
I wonder if this employee is going to report the funds used for these redirected purchases for personal use on her 1040 as income as required by law.
