Reimbursement of the Internal Revenue Service for Investigative Services Provided to the Independent Counsel

Headnotes: 

To the extent that Internal Revenue Service agents detailed to an independent counsel perform work that is related to the type of work for which the IRS receives its appropriations, the detail falls within an exception to the general rule against non-reimbursable details. Reimbursement by the independent counsel is appropriate for work performed by the detailed agents that is not IRS-related.
