    Teamsters Applaud IRS Ruling Against FedEx Ground – Company Fined $319 Million In What Hoffa Calls An Illegal Scam - Best Syndication

    The strategy seemed like a great idea. The drivers were responsible for their own taxes, their own liability insurance, and their own gas. But now the company may suffer. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has ordered the Federal Express to pay back taxes and fines totaling $319 million for ground employees the firm misclassified as independent contractors.

    So in year ending 5/02 fedex earned 725 million but in reality when taken federal taxes and penalities(not state or locaL) into account they only earned 406 million.
