IRS Apologizes for Pricey Star Trek Training [VIDEO]

The Internal Revenue Service apologized on Friday after being questioned about the use of taxpayer money to produce a video parodying ‘Star Trek’ which was shown at the opening of a 2010 conference. The video was released only after members of the House Ways and Means Committee asked for it. Dr. Charles Boustany of Lafayette is Ways and Means Oversight Sub-Committee Chairman. Here’s what he had to say about it on our sister station, NewsTalk 96.5 KPEL.

Here’s the video, with actors who are IRS employees.

 

The IRS also uses video for legitimate training purposes and for taxpayer information, such as this one based on ‘Gilligan’s Island.’
