The IRS admitted to lawmakers that it produced another pricey parody video for an agency conference at a cost of roughly $10,000.
The video, which spoofs the Donald Trump reality show “The Apprentice,” shows IRS officials discussing ways to cut training costs for its Small Business/Self-Employed division, which was hosting the conference. The House Ways and Means Committee released the video Friday.
Rep. Charles Boustany Jr. (R-La.), who heads the committee’s Oversight subpanel, said the latest video was “another example of abuse and waste” at the agency.
“There is nothing amusing about the American people footing the bill for this rogue and out of control agency,” he said in a statement.
The video depicts IRS officials gathered around a board table discussing ways to cut costs.
