An IRS representative can thank Howard Stern for making them look extremely foolish after a private phone call with a taxpayer was broadcast on national radio. When you call the IRS to deal with your tax problems, it is an embarrassing moment that you want to keep private. A Massachusetts-based woman called the Internal Revenue Service to discuss her tax bill with an IRS representative and find some financial relief.
IRS Representative Violates Taxpayer
For some reason, the IRS representative was on hold with Howard Stern’s radio show. Why an IRS representative was on hold with Howard Stern while at work remains an ugly mystery to the Tax Resolution Institute. When the radio show took the IRS representative’s call off hold, it apparently wasn’t made clear to the IRS representative, and his private conversation with the woman was broadcast on air.
As the woman continued to talk to the IRS representative, her cell phone started buzzing as she received numerous calls and texts from across the country. Her personal phone number had been broadcast along with part of the conversation, and she was suddenly being plagued by the Howard Stern hoodlums. She asked the IRS rep, “Are you speaking to Howard Stern?”
