IRS Losing and Missing Emails

This time, it's not related to Lois Lerner, but the Internal Revenue Service, facing a lawsuit from NetJets over a tax bill, is accused of "losing" the emails and other data relevant to the case:

"In a suit against the IRS filed in 2011, NetJets claims the IRS improperly forced it to pay a ticket tax that is meant to apply to commercial-airline customers, not private jets. The IRS counter-sued. But in 2012, congress">Congress clarified that NetJets was right, the tax does not apply to it.

"In the meantime, key information and evidence has suddenly vanished.

The Columbus Dispatch reports NetJets has filed a motion with US District Court Judge Edmund Sargus Jr., claiming the IRS has 'wiped clean a number of computer hard drives containing e-mails and other electronic documents that the government was required to produce' in the company's lawsuit against the agency."

Destroying evidence appears to be the favorite pastime at the IRS.
