Nerf Footballs, Plush Animals, $140 Dinners and the “World’s Largest Crossword Puzzle”
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) released a review of the IRS employee credit card program this week. Many of the items that were purchased and approved may astound you. Taken directly from the report, Americans for Tax Reform has compiled a list of the ten most ridiculous items purchased with IRS credit cards:
Item #1: “Nerf Footballs”
IRS employees used their credit card to purchase $119 worth of Nerf footballs that were intended to be used for a “team-building exercise.” As if that wasn’t bad enough, they never used the balls, which are “currently stored in a filing cabinet” somewhere in the bowels of the IRS.
