PSH-11-0007 - In the Matter of Personnel Security Hearing

On March 2, 2012, an OHA Hearing Officer issued a Decision in which she determined that an Individual=s access authorization should not be restored. In reaching this determination, the Hearing Officer found that the Individual had not resolved the security concerns arising from her failure to file her Federal and State income taxes for tax years 2004 through 2010. At the hearing, the Individual testified that that she had made significant progress in changing her life and in becoming more responsible regarding her duty to file her tax returns. As of the date of the hearing, the Individual had filed her returns for 2004 through 2006. In addition, after the hearing, she provided documentation that she is receiving assistance from her local IRS Taxpayer Assistance office in filing her remaining 2007 through 2010 returns. After considering all the evidence and testimony in the proceeding, the Hearing Officer found that the Individual had not resolved all of the delinquent filings and that the Individual’s total tax liability and her ability to pay her tax debt were uncertain. She concluded that the Individual had not resolved the security concerns raised by her failure to file her returns. Therefore, the Hearing Officer concluded that the Individual’s access authorization should not be restored. Kimberly Chapman - Hearing Officer
