When Whistleblower got an e-mail alerting us that the Minnesota Department of Revenue was trying to fill a job in Phoenix, we wanted to know more. “Why is the state posting a job that requires local travel with a position in Arizona?” the tipster asked.

Kit Borgman, a revenue department spokeswoman, said the job would not require travel to Minnesota, even though the job description included out-of-state travel. The state has auditors in at least 19 states “because MN taxpayers are located everywhere.”
Now we know that even out-of-state taxpayers could have a Minnesota auditor looking over their shoulder.
What do you think about state jobs that are actually out of state?
