Employees at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Federal Reserve system and the Department of Veterans Affairs have higher tax-delinquency rates than the average federal worker, according to IRS data.

The data released today by the Internal Revenue Service show that 3.27 percent of federal workers and retirees were behind on their taxes as of Sept. 30, 2013.

The delinquency rate at the Fed was 6.51 percent, while the rates at HUD and the VA were 5.29 percent and 4.38 percent, respectively.

The lowest delinquency rate, 1.2 percent, was at the Treasury Department, which includes the IRS. Employees there are subject to tougher penalties, including dismissal, for tax cheating.
