The federal agency with the largest back-tax bill? The US Postal Service, where hundreds of thousands of employees owed a total of more than $283 million, said the report.
Also high on the list is the Department of Veterans Affairs, where employees had more than $156 million in back taxes.
The biggest group, though, is retired military personnel. That group owed more than $1.5 billion dollars.
And even the White House folks are behind in their taxes. Employees in the executive office of the president, which includes nearly 2,000 employees, owed more than $831,000 to Uncle Sam, the IRS found.
The large agency with the highest delinquency rate per employee was the Federal Mine Safety and Health Review Commission, where more than 11 percent of employees owed back taxes, followed by the Government Printing Office, where nearly seven percent were in arrears.

All taxes of the people should be put on hold until government employees taxes are payed. Sounds good to me because we would, most likely, not have to ever pay our taxes.
Cheating? Overwithholding? Not filing?
I mean underwithholding of course
As someone who is currently dealing with IRS thugs; just because the IRS says you owe doesn’t necessarily mean you owe. In my case the IRS simply ignored all the evidence I provided them and issued a notice anyhow. I’m awaiting my day in tax court to settle the issue.
