I think it is strategic undercutting of the truth, that Adam Czarkowski misrepresents the aims of the IRS budget increase. Idaho Republican, Sen. Mike Crapo, publicly said similar to Czarkowski. Public record set straight by IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig: “The $80 billion in funding will not increase audits of households making less than $400,000 per year.”
In the past the large corporate and global high-net-worth taxpayers have been the area of challenge for the agency, Rettig wrote in a letter to the Senate. “These resources are absolutely not about increasing audit scrutiny on small businesses or middle-income Americans.” Czarkowski is simply anti-Democrats at a time when D.C. Republicans share that negativity. Negativity rather than public service, earns D.C. Republicans, most of them under McConnell’s thumb, their paychecks and perks. It’s also, unfortunate for us all, Trump-influence time: say any old non-fact that gullible people will pick up and act upon.
