Washington, D.C. — Today, the IRS released its strategic operating plan for applying the $80 billion in funding provided by the Inflation Reduction Act to modernize the nation’s tax system. Jean Ross, senior fellow at the Center for American Progress, released the following statement:
The strategic operating plan sets out an ambitious and critically important vision for modernizing how Americans interact with our tax system. This plan builds off the progress that’s begun thanks to the funding provided by the Inflation Reduction Act. Already, the IRS has hired 5,000 additional workers to improve customer service in the current tax filing season.
Over the long term, the funding will more than pay for itself by ensuring that the IRS can hold the very wealthy and large corporations accountable for paying what they owe while also improving a federal system that touches the lives of every American. Although remedying the impact of long-term disinvestment in the agency will take time, the plan released today, along with the funding provided by the Inflation Reduction Act, represents a huge step forward.
