The IRS Calls 46K Workers Back for Tax Season…They Say “NO THANKS”!

This is going to make tax season very interesting.

The United States government has been partly shut down for over a month now, and each passing day brings a new challenge to a family in need.

With even this partial shutdown, there are 800,000 federal employees who are not getting paid – and that’s whether or not they come to work.  For the TSA, this has meant an increasingly dangerous number of workers simply not showing up.  With the organization having been forced into nearly every airport in the nation after 9/11, the lack of blue shirts on patrol has led to the shuttering of an entire terminal in Miami.

And let’s not get started with the Super Bowl, which is being played in Atlanta, GA this year.  The Peach State’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport is considered the busiest in the entire world.  With a lack of TSA agents on hand for the influx of tourists, things could get severely ugly.

The IRS is also not immune from the stalemate.  Recently, the agency put out a call to bring back up to 46,000 workers in order to properly process tax refunds in the coming weeks.

The only problem now is that they don’t want to.

Less than a week before tax season is slated to open for the new filing season, Internal Revenue Service (IRS) doors remain largely closed. However, as part of the IRS Shutdown Contingency Plan, 46,052 employees have been designated as “excepted/exempt,” sending tens of thousands of IRS employees back to work without pay. However, some are fighting back by asking for permission to stay home. Those absences are throwing the tax season open into question and raising concerns about whether the IRS will be able to process tax returns and issue taxpayer refunds on time.

The way in which these workers are demanding to stay at home could have a rippling effect throughout the nation as well.

IRS employees who are asking to stay home are using a clause in their union contracts that offers an exemption for an economic hardship. The exemption is based on financial circumstances and is not limited to the shutdown.

That union, the National Treasury Employees Union (NTEU), represents 150,000 employees at 33 federal agencies and departments including the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food & Drug Administration, the National Park Service and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Should this union push forward with their exemption, the same could theoretically apply to any or all of the 800,000 federal workers currently being expected to work without pay.

Could life by any worse right now for Hunter Biden? The guy must walk around with a rain cloud over his head all day long. But you can’t exactly feel bad for the guy. He created his own problems. Now, Rudy Giuliani is saying Hunter might be a pedo. From RealClearPolitics: Rudy Giuliani talks about “sensitive” material on the laptop of Hunter Biden including “numerous pictures” of underage girls and an alleged text message exchange he had with his father where he admits to a relationship with a 14-year-old girl and creating an unsafe environment for his children. LOOK: VIDEO: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=coFx3ZDXWrg&feature=emb_title From New York Post: The FBI subpoena of Hunter Biden’s alleged computer and hard drive came in connection with a money-laundering investigation, according to documents obtained by Fox News.

It doesn’t matter what Joe Biden or anybody connected to him has done. What matters is that President Trump loses his bid for re-election in November. Nothing else. That’s how the media – and Democrats – think. Democracy be damned. From Fox News: The FBI’s subpoena of a laptop and hard drive purportedly belonging to Hunter Biden came in connection with a money laundering investigation in late 2019, according to documents obtained by Fox News and verified by multiple federal law enforcement officials who reviewed them. It is unclear, at this point, whether the investigation is ongoing or if it was directly related to Hunter Biden. CONTINUED: Multiple federal law enforcement officials, as well as two separate government officials, confirmed the authenticity of these documents, which were signed by FBI Special Agent Joshua Wilson. Wilson did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment. One of the documents, obtained by Fox News, was designated as an FBI “Receipt for Property” form, which details the bureau’s interactions with John Paul Mac Isaac, the owner of “The Mac Shop” who reported the laptop’s contents to authorities.
