Yesterday a story broke about eleven Secret Service agents hiring prostitutes in Columbia. Today, Forbes contributor Robert W. Wood writes, “When Prostitutes Service Secret Service Are They Tax Deductible?” Good question.
Are the agents using their per diem to finance the activity? Reimbursable expense? If using per diem, should the reallocation for prostitute fees need to be reported as additional income?
Eleven agents? Were there eleven women? Did they need to rent a bus or a couple of vans? Does use of a government van require being reported as additional income? Does use of a government supplied hotel room require being reported as additional income?
This brings back memories of so many SEC employees and their pornography viewing habits while on the job. Has the Secret Service outdone the SEC?
