IRS Costs for Conferences Exceeded Estimates

From the Free Beacon [1]:

The Internal Revenue Service hosted events that exceeded cost estimates and often failed to meet requirements for their approval, according to a report [2] from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration.

The report reviewed documentation for 650 events held by the IRS in fiscal years 2013 and 2014 and found that most were reported as required, but that some events exceeded costs or did not receive full approval.
