Nakeisha Hall’s job was to help taxpayers. Hall, the daughter of a long-time IRS employee, started working for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in 2000. In 2007, she began work at the IRS Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) office in Birmingham, Alabama and subsequently worked in TAS offices in Nebraska, Louisiana, and Utah. At TAS, Hall was responsible for helping taxpayers who were having difficulties with the IRS, including victims of identity theft.
As it turns out, Hall wasn’t doing her job. Instead, she was using her job to steal from taxpayers.
