A BILL

To prohibit the provision of performance awards to employees of the Internal Revenue Service who owe back taxes.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. Short title.

This Act may be cited as the “No Bonuses for Tax-Delinquent IRS Employees Act of 2014”.

SEC. 2. Prohibition on performance awards to IRS employees who owe back taxes.

(a) In general.—The Commissioner of the Internal Revenue Service shall not provide any performance award (including, but not limited to, bonuses, step increases, and time off) to an employee of the Internal Revenue Service who owes an outstanding Federal tax debt.

(b) Outstanding Federal tax debt.—For purposes of this section, the term “outstanding Federal tax debt” means any outstanding debt under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 which has not been paid after an assessment of a tax, penalty, or interest and which is not subject to further appeal or a petition for redetermination under such Code. A debt shall not fail to be treated as an outstanding Federal tax debt merely because it is the subject of an installment agreement under section 6159 of such Code or an offer-in-compromise under section 7121 of such Code.
