IRS Officers Suspended

WASHINGTON -- The Internal Revenue Service, apparently making good on promises made last week to the Senate Finance Committee, suspended several mid-level managers while it investigates allegations that field agents were rated on the number of seizures, levies and liens imposed on taxpayers.


Meanwhile, Republican congressional leaders on Sunday promised quick action to change the way the IRS works and perhaps the tax law itself.


The developments followed three days of explosive hearings last week in which taxpayers detailed how they were pursued by the agency for taxes they did not owe or had paid or tried to pay.
