    Default Feds, military owe $3.4B in unpaid taxes

    WASHINGTON - From postal workers to congressional staffers, federal workers failed to pay billions in taxes in 2010. According to records released by the Internal Revenue Service, active and retired federal employees and military personnel combined owed $3,420,168,684 in unpaid taxes for 2010, an increase of more than 3 percent over the previous year.

    As has been the case in past years, the agency with employees who owe the most in unpaid taxes is the U.S. Postal Service, where 25,640 employees owe nearly $270 million. Employees in the U.S. Senate and the House of Representatives owe more the $10 million. Active duty military owe more than $100 million.

    The IRS tracks the voluntary compliance of federal workers and retirees each year and breaks down the delinquents by agency. There is no comparable data to compare the compliance rates of taxpayers in the private sector, but in past years when the IRS did track compliance rates of private and public sector workers, the delinquency rates were about the same.

    Many of those federal employees who owe Uncle Sam enter into payment plans with the IRS. Currently, only IRS employees can be fired for failing to pay their taxes, however, legislation has been introduced that would require federal agencies to fire employees who are seriously delinquent in their taxes.

    Why don't they withhold a percent of their pay until the dept is paid.

    well its not the government or military that owe as a whole its the typical person who can figure out the damn tax law! what a jumbled mess of bullshit that is to try to figure out. its easier to just say the hell with it out and pay what they figure you owe when they find you.

    true even those in the government and even those who pass the new crazy tax laws can't even figure the system out. we need to start over !

    You know, if US had income taxes made like we do in EU, they would not owe unpaid taxes

    Yeah right - you go ask a postal worker to pay his back taxes - I know what they are capable of

    I think you have confused a safe drinking limit with what I like to call 'lunch'
