NTEU Urges House Panel to Boost IRS Funding


Slashing the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) budget once again would devastate the struggling agency and make it even harder for front-line employees to help Americans with their tax problems, collect enough federal revenue and fulfill other aspects of their important mission.

In a letter to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government, NTEU National President Tony Reardon said it’s time for Congress to stop cutting the IRS budget.

“Further reducing the IRS budget will continue to degrade its already impaired ability to provide taxpayers with the assistance they need and fairly enforce the tax laws enacted by Congress,” Reardon said in the letter, which NTEU sent as the subcommittee gets ready to consider a fiscal year (FY) IRS funding bill on Wednesday.

Reardon, who supports the White House’s proposal to increase IRS funding by $1 billion nex fiscal year, wrote that the agency desperately needs more money to “begin rebuilding the depleted workforce and carry out its important taxpayer service and enforcement missions.” More
