(Scroll down for video) IRS employees apparently are not all about taxes, they know a thing or two about dance moves as well, according to video uploaded to the internet.

In the latest black eye for the Internal Revenue Service, the agency on Friday provided Congress with another video that shows its employees line dancing on a stage.

Video of IRS workers practicing their dance steps, lasting just under three minutes comes weeks after it was revealed that agency workers were recording parodies of the “Star Trek” and “Gilligan’s Island” television programs.

The IRS also is under fire by lawmakers and the Obama administration for targeting conservative groups requesting tax exemption between 2010 and 2012. That investigation has led President Barack Obama to replace the interim head of the agency, with two other senior officials stepping aside.

The videos were provided in response to a request by a senior member of the House Ways and Means Committee, Representative Charles Boustany, Republican-Louisiana.

“The outrage to the IRS is only growing stronger,” Boustany, Chairman of Ways and Means oversight subcommittee said. “Clearly this is an agency where the abuse and waste is the norm and not the exception,” he added.

Eldridge said the video was recorded in the IRS offices in New Carrollton, Maryland, outside of Washington, D.C.Mobile video not loading? Click here to view
