    WASHINGTON - At a time when the White House is projecting the largest deficit in the nation's history, Uncle Sam is trying to recover billions of dollars in unpaid taxes from its own employees.

    Federal workers owe more than $3 billion in income taxes they failed to pay in 2008. According to Internal Revenue Service documents, 276,300 federal employees and retirees owe $3,042,200,000.

    Unless I missed it, it doesn't say what the rate is compared to all other taxpayers. Whoever you work for, taxes are just too complicated and easy to cheat on if you choose to take the chance.

    Gee looks like Obama's peeps have added to the list....

    Executive Office of the President (includes the White House): 50 employees owe $812,917;

    U.S. Senate: 231 employees owe $2,469,026;

    U.S. House of Representatives: 447 employees owe $5,809,631;

    I wonder if the head of the IRS is still on this list?

    It's going to be tough to fire them, when the current admin has been hiring them. One actually runs the IRS no?
