IRS Employees Face Threats of Violence


The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration in its report for April to September 2010, stated that IRS employees constantly face threats of violence in carrying out their duties. Assaults, intimidations and bomb threats are some of the dangers faced. The report says that some of these threats arise due to the Internet.

According to the report, the IG's Offce of Investigations “has continued to aggressively pursue those who threaten the safety and security of IRS personnel, data and facilities, or who otherwise attempt to corruptly impact the integrity of the IRS and the federal system of tax administration.”
