The Internal Revenue Service has canceled a scheduled furlough day for the second time within the past month, GovExec reported Thursday.

Eric Katz writes acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel told employees they will not be required to go on unpaid leave Aug. 30 and said the agency has made progress in its cost-reduction aims.

The IRS called off the July 22 furlough day and the canceled Aug. 30 unpaid leave was the last scheduled furlough, Katz reports.

Werfel told employees the agency could still require another furlough in September as part of efforts to reduce costs, GovExec reports.

Katz writes the agency has implemented three furlough days so far.
