Wednesday April 20, 2022 – It is now common knowledge that the IRS is woefully understaffed and underfunded. In fact, Natasha Sarin, the Treasury’s counselor for tax policy and implementation asserted “chronic underfunding  has starved the IRS of the tools it needs to serve the American people.”
Is that right? Has the IRS been starved of resources? Should the American public agree to double the size of the agency, as President Biden has asked? Would doubling the size of the IRS solve all of our budget problems?
Attorney Steven A. Leahy considers these questions, and more, on Today’s Tax Talk.
