BOSTON — Sen. Scott Brown wants to make it easier to collect back taxes from federal workers and members of Congress, Fox News is reporting.

The Massachusetts Republican said that a recent report by the Internal Revenue Service showed that in 2010, 98,000 federal employees owed a combined $1 billion in back taxes. He said members and employees of the U.S. Senate alone owed over $2 million.

Brown is pushing for a bill that would require members and employees of Congress and federal employees who file financial disclosures forms to report any delinquent tax liability and offer a plan to pay the taxes.

Those failing to arrange a payment plan with the IRS within a year could have those back taxes taken directly out of their wages.
