Chaffetz: How Come So Many Government Workers are Tax Cheats?

In a FOX News op-ed, Rep. Jason Chaffetz condemns the “significant number of federal workers” who are responsible for $1 billion in unpaid taxes.

Writes Chaffetz:

It is an honor and a privilege to serve in the federal workforce and it is disheartening that so many federal workers are behind on taxes. These employees are not exempt from their civic responsibility to fulfill tax obligations and those who refuse to pay what they owe should be held accountable.

Americans across the country work hard to fulfill their civic responsibility to pay their taxes on time. Federal workers should not be exempt. Steps must be taken to ensure that those who are delinquent satisfy their tax obligations. If they refuse to do so, they should be held accountable.
