CFEG reports that on July 15, 2019, in a federal district court in the Eastern District of Kentucky, a former Internal Revenue Service (IRS) employee was sentenced for making false statements.

According to court documents, this former IRS employee was employed as an IRS revenue officer between July 2014 and April 2016. During this period, he submitted to the IRS travel vouchers, case histories, and time reports on which he falsely reported travel expenses that he did not actually incur and work that he did not actually perform. The submission of these documents and the false statements contained therein caused the United States to make payments to him to which he was not entitled. This former IRS employee knew that these documents contained false statements and intended that the false statements would result in his obtaining money from the United States to which he was not entitled.

The former IRS employee was sentenced to time served followed by three years of supervised release. He was further ordered to pay $10,000 in restitution to the IRS.


When IRS employees make false statements to obtain money from the United States Government to which they are not entitled, the IRS fails in its mission to apply the tax law with integrity and fairness to all.
