Heating issue sends firefighters to IRS

By Clarence Williams

Part of the steam heating system at the Internal Revenue Service appeared to malfunction Tuesday night, a D.C. fire department spokesman said.

Firefighters called to the building on Constitution Avenue NW about 9:15 p.m. found leaking steam pipes, said fire department spokesman Pete Piringer.

There was no indication that the federal tax agency was running out of steam, but it was not immediately clear if the incident would affect Wednesday operations.

Well lets hope NOT! CPAs have a lot of work to do and help people solve their IRS issues. We can't have the IRS not operating.
