‘You know who else has horrible customer service? Muggers’: IRS chief admits ‘horrible customer service’

You can’t make this stuff up. Reality-challenged acting IRS chief Steven Miller continued his testimony this morning and actually put forward this explanation for why his agency targeted conservative groups.

Video via the Washington Examiner:

Tone deaf at best. But the mockery and drubbing were right on key. Your “customers” ain’t buyin’ what you’re sellin’, Mr. Miller.

Now that the IRS official in charge of the tax-exempt organizations during the targeting of conservatives has a cushy gig running the Obamacare unit, this is an especially scary thought:

    Since when is someone who is supposed to willingly contribute or face Federal Time a “customer”?

    Lousy “customer service” is a college co-ed talking to someone else. Or on their cell phone when they should be ringing up my groceries at the register.

    Like most, I’d rather go through multiple root canals than annually spending time at a computer, with my CPA, or inside H&R Block figuring my “cut” to buttress their “action”!

    Customers cannot be sent to prison for not buying anything.

      Yet. Wait until we all have to buy health insurance or go to jail.

        And if you have too much health insurance, the IRS will tax you again

    They’re pretty much flipping us the finger and saying, “Yeah, we did it and we’re going to keep on doing it, and there’s nothing you can do about it!”

      Unfortunately you are 100% correct. Oh how I effing HATE this administration. The unbelievable thing is there are millions of sycophants that are still DEFENDING this SHITE! UN-BEE-LEEV-UHH-BULL!

      • colchak

        Exactly. I don’t know what’s worse: the administration or the people defending them. It’s terrifying to think that these people are allowed to vote.

      and we will continue to kill live, breathing, moving babies too…. so TAKE THAT!!!

    They should keep this assclown Miller’s home address on file updated for the arrest warrant.

    The incompetent Treasury IG got a free pass during the hearing. The targeting began “early in CY 2010”. The IG didn’t start their audit until March 2012. And they only found out about the targeting by complaint letters from Congress!! He didn’t answer why it took 14 months (conveniently hidden during the election) to do a 21 page audit.

    Another thing customers have is a choice of where to shop or buy an option not available offered by the IRS.

    Hey, donkey, tax payers don’t give their hard earned cash to you voluntarily. It’s not like tax payers can go to another business to donate their taxes to.

    The dude should be fired on the spot.

  • Junie3

    Did ya know paying taxes is voluntary? They said that there there.

    First of all, I feel the Commissioner of the IRS should know the difference between a customer and a taxpayer. They are not in any way, shape, or form the same thing. That’s all I’ve got.

    just wait until someone just like him is deciding whether you get the healthcare you need!

    “Horrible customer service…” is more akin to:
    Knowing you MUST confirm…the ‘contents’ of your order
    BEFORE you leave the “drive thru”…

    What the IRS actually “did”…is lousy customer “s’port”…
    where ‘you are the target’ of their game (sport);
    and they “slashed your tires” AS YOU LEFT (the drive thru).

    What was (truly) “criminal”…they also “keyed your car”…
    when you ‘reported’ the tire-slashing.
    AFTER questioning you for several years…

    Instead of “let the games continue“…
    it’s “let the prosecutions begin…

    my personal favorite is when that democrat claimed that paying taxes was “voluntary”. & this tool agreed with him. if you elect not to pay your taxes, you get an all expense paid trip to a federal prison. not to mention that unless your self employed your employer is required by law to withhold you estimated tax from your paycheck every week.

    IRS chief admits ‘horrible customer service’

    It’s not customer service when someone is pointing a gun at your head and takes the fruit of your labor. It is robery. If the government does it, it is tyranny!
