Two years ago, we wrote about the IRS giving us one of our most infamous FOIA responses - an encrypted CD full of entirely redacted documents. Now, just a couple days before Tax Day, the agency does it again, reaching new heights of frustration with our first password-protected Glomar rejection.
Over the last few months, MuckRock’s Alex Richardson has been attempting to use FOIA to dig up what he could on the IRS’ Whistleblower Office. To say that it hasn’t been going well would be an understatement. To say that it has driven us to new depths of frustrated disbelief would be more accurate.
