House Passed: IRS Redesign
Recently, the House passed multiple bills to redesign the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for the first time in over two decades. I released the following statement:
A new tax code calls for a new tax administrator, and we have worked together so that the IRS can be transformed into an agency with a singular mission: 'taxpayer first.' With this package, we are taking a monumental step in redesigning the IRS for first time in 20 years, refocusing the agency to live up to its mission of quality service, and reining in its enforcement powers to prevent future abuse.
These bipartisan bills are the result of nearly a dozen hearings and roundtables, countless briefings and meetings, and close work with stakeholders over the course of the last two years. I want to thank all of our Members for their tireless work on these bills. Their leadership and dedication has been instrumental in passing these pieces of legislation and I hope the Senate considers these measures soon.
