In testimony to the Senate Finance Committee today, IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig said that over half of the agency’s employees work full time from home.

Rettig said: “53% of the employees are in a full-time telework capacity. The rest of the employees either have a blended capacity or they are onsite.”

In a perhaps not unrelated statement, Rettig said the agency is only picking up the phone “19 to 20 percent” of the time.
