Possible IRS Furloughs

Posted by Mike C Posted on Feb 13 2013

 Acting IRS Commissioner, Steven Miller, stated in a memo to agency employees that it may have to consider placing some employees on temporary furlough if sequestration occurs on 3/1/13. Employees would be provided at least 30 days' notice prior to executing a furlough. In addition to furloughs, the IRS has an ongoing hiring freeze and will look to cut operational and administrative costs for travel, training, facilities, and supplies.
