Most IRS Managers Say Agency is Incorruptible, Fair - 1991-03-23
WASHINGTON (AP) _ The managers who run the IRS view the tax agency as incorruptible, efficient and - above all - fair. The most common ethical lapse they see among fellow employees is the snatching of government supplies for personal use.
Seven percent of those officials, who oversee processing and auditing of tax returns, believe Internal Revenue Service power is used at least occasionally to punish or intimidate; 51 percent said it's never done.
More than half say the IRS should back off hard-line enforcement efforts and emphasize "customer service."
