The Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations’ hearing examined Department of Defense (DOD) contractors who are abusing the federal tax system by either failing to file tax returns or not paying their taxes. A General Accounting Office (GAO) review of DOD contractors found that 27,100 contractors owed $3 billion in back taxes. The purpose of the hearing was to identify the corrective actions that can be taken to ensure that DOD contractors pay the taxes they owe the federal government.
