Thursday March 10, 2022 – Buried in the $1.5 trillion omnibus spending package is a 6 percent raise for the IRS – it isn’t the 80 Billion in 10 year package they were looking for, but it will have to do – for now.
We have reported on IRS Surge I and IRS Surge II designed to tackle the huge backlog. The new money will be used to hire 5000 new IRS employees this year. And another 5000 after that.
The IRS claims its aggressive plan will clear the backlog by the end of 2022.
Attorney Steven A. Leahy has something to say about this new plan.
