I'm sure there's a good reason for this nonsense, but it totally escapes logic and reason.
Why is the federal government spending time filling in withholding forms for another branch of the federal government. Federal emplyees should be paid tax free, but for lower wages than the commercial sector. The savings in expense would easily offset the loss of revenue, let alone the savings in reporting and collecting administration costs.
See? Doesn't that make sense? Of course not! You're the federal government and logic/common sense aren't part of the equation.

Hey Ramrod, I am an auditor for the State of MN and about 15 years ago the state needed more sales tax revenue. The solution, make themselves taxable. Municipalities too. So now companies that sell to the state were found liable for the sales tax they neglected to charge. Sometimes, it was the only error the company had.
The next solution, set up employees to self assess use tax for the state's purchases.
A further solution, audit the cities and counties to make sure they are paying sales and or use tax.
What we have here is a spiral of stupidity. The Feds aren't the only ones.
Internally, the state is trying to fire its most qualified, experienced, productive employees thinking they can hire two kids out of school for about the price of one talented individual. The kids get the training and quit to work for a firm that works against the department of revenue. Training costs money and the department is training the kids to work against them. Smart, huh. And imagine the lawsuits that are now developing against the department of revenue claiming age discrimination. This will cost Minnesota taxpayers millions.
