Congressional Employees Owe $8.6M In Back Taxes

According to Internal Revenue Service statistics, more than 700 congressional employees are delinquent on their taxes for a total of $8.6 million--an above-average tax delinquency rate for federal employees. The rate of delinquency for the House of Representatives is 4.87%, as of the end of the 2013 fiscal year. According to IRS data obtained by USA TODAY under the Freedom of Information Act, that's more than one employee per congressman or senator. Tax delinquencies on Capitol Hill are four times more common than at the Treasury Department--which has come under congressional scrutiny over bonuses paid to tax-delinquent IRS employees.
