IRS Agents Live on Howard Stern

An unnamed woman from Cape Cod, MA inadvertently, and unknowingly ended up being a caller on the Howard Stern show recently. She was on a call with an IRS agent aka "Jimmy from Long Island." I would expect Jimmy was been subsequently terminated.

Jimmy accidentally conferenced the woman and Howard Stern onto the same line.. the line that was being broadcast live on Sirius XM. Stern to his credit yelled Jimmy's name repeatedly but for whatever reason Jimmy continued his call.The 3:44 recording now on YouTube airs it all.

The IRS did release this statement regarding the incident. "We are aware of this troubling situation, and we are currently reviewing the matter. The IRS takes the confidentiality of taxpayer information very seriously, and we have high standards that we expect and require employees to follow."
