Reason Why Tax Cheats "Get Away With It"


A woman nearly got away with a $2-million faulty tax refund.   The state says there's a reason cheats get may away with it.  Simply put, the Oregon Department of Revenue doesn't have enough tax agents to review the refunds that are being sent to taxpayers. The Oregonian reports one out of five agency positions is vacant right now, despite an agency goal to collect as much owed tax dollars as possible.  Last week, Krystle Reyes was arrested for accepting a much larger refund than she was supposed to be issued, a Turbo Tax error.   And while her refund was red-flagged by the state's automated system, approval was issued after a quick manual check. A couple reasons for the short staff: state budget problems and a huge computer system overhaul.
