The U.S. Census Bureau has been stuck with a $7 million accounting mess after former President Donald Trump’s administration ordered the federal agency to pause payroll taxes last year for certain employees, including many temporary 2020 census workers, NPR has learned.

This whole payroll tax delay was meant to saddle the incoming administration with a problem. This wasn’t the only one they created for Biden.
