Hey Florida. Donít tell anyone but itís easier to cheat on your taxes.
By Graham Brink


In 2010, 2,788 criminal investigators worked from the IRS. Last year, the number was just above 2,000, a 27 percent drop, according to data from Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Tax examiners were cut by 17 percent. Revenue agents, the men and women with the talent and experience to handle many of the most complex cases, fell 35 percent. The funding cuts have resulted in fewer audits and criminal investigations, and the agency doesnít spend as much time on the ones it does investigate, research shows. They donít have the time to catch as many crooks, nor find as many honest mistakes
