Here's your interesting numbers story of the day: Based on The Washington Post's analysis of Internal Revenue Service records, about 98,000 federal employees — including those from the post office — owed $1.03 billion in unpaid taxes. It's a number that has been reported before but this year, while the number of delinquent employees fell, the total amount owed ballooned by $32 million or 3 percent.
The Post reports:
"The figures are 'totally unacceptable and disrespectful to hardworking American taxpayers,' said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah). 'If you're on the federal payroll, the very least you can do is pay your taxes.'
