Today, the IRS released to the Committee another parody video made with taxpayer dollars. This time, the video is a parody of Donald Trump’s “The Apprentice.” Based on information provided by the IRS, the cost of the video was approximately $10,000 and was made to be shown at an IRS Small Business/Self-Employed Division Conference.

Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany Jr., M.D. (R-LA): “Another day, another example of abuse and waste at the IRS.  Months ago, I demanded the IRS come clean about the time and money it spent to produce these frivolous videos.  While we may have no answers,  we do have an endless supply of what appears to be the IRS’s idea of entertainment.  Whether it is wasteful conferences and videos or the inexcusable targeting of taxpayers based on their personal beliefs, there is nothing amusing about the American people footing the bill for this rogue and out of control agency.”
