#1 Took them a month-and-a-half to process and cash my estimated quarterly tax payment.

#2 You owe them money, firm pay date is established with late fines and penalties.

They owe you money, no such rules apply.

#4 Add IRS to the soup. All agencies have huge labor shortage. I wounder if and when they farm this work out to China. Even protest groups are showing the same problem. People don't want to work. Street people the new normal. No family, no belonging, and no basic social abilities.

#5  management’s decision to destroy an estimated 30 million paper-filed information return documents

Wonder how many of those were upper 10 percenters? from Blue States?

#6 Smaller workforces and increased reliance on computerized filing have failed to reduce the IRS backlog. 80,000 new employees urgently needed.

#7 I'd imagine the only two ways to get audited is to be obviously breaking the law or to be a designated Enemy of the State™.

#9 They still haven't processed the paper return I sent it some 7 months later. Sure as fuck cashed the check as fast as they could.

#10 Be advised, number 9 clearly confirms number 6.

#11 

Why is the IRS behind?
Since they don't seem to bother investigate anything but GOP / Right Wing groups.

#12 https://federalnewsnetwork.com/workforce/2022/03/irs-brings-teleworking-staff-back-to-office-in-phased-reentry-starting-in-may/

Just now starting to return to office work, so consider the backlog as a testament to semi-retirement as a productivity standard.

#13 My belief is that only the dregs of the Obama crowd is participating in the third term. Competent Obamites are out making big money off their connections in the private sector. You would think that the Department of Theft would be the highest priority. I am convinced that Lean Manufacturing principles could take care of this issue. I am also convinced that no Lean expert would be interested in the project. IRS work is kind of like perfecting a jock itch remedy; nobody wants to be involved in the disgusting nature of improving this particular process.
