CHICAGO — The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is suing Robert J. O'Donnell, a former IRS agent, for allegedly misrepresenting how many hours he worked for the agency over a five-year period.
The IRS filed a lawsuit on March 1 in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois alleging the defendant made fraudulent claims to receive money from the agency.
According to the complaint, the IRS alleges it sustained monetary damages caused by the defendant being paid for 1,720 hours he did not work. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly using credit hours and compensatory time hours he had accrued fraudulently.
The IRS seeks damages of $91,444 plus civil monetary penalties, interest, court costs and any further relief the court grants.
