Thanks To Biden Spending Plan, Americans Will Be ‘Twice As Likely’ To Get Audited By IRS

Americans will be more than twice as likely to experience an IRS audit under President Joe Biden’s “tax and spending spree.”

This is according to a report from Republican members of the House Ways & Means Committee.

Merry Audits, Everyone

Reason reports, “President Joe Biden’s plan to beef up IRS enforcement and snoop on Americans’ bank accounts will require hiring more than 80,000 additional tax cops—expanding a federal bureaucracy with a long track record of flouting due process and undermining privacy.”

“As part of Biden’s ‘Build Back Better’ plan, the IRS would get $80 billion in additional funding over the next 10 years,” Reason noted. “The bulk of those new funds, nearly $45 billion, would be directed toward enforcement actions with the goal of doubling the number of annual audits of small businesses. By comparison, the bill spends a relatively meager $1.93 billion on improving taxpayer services, including education and filing assistance.”

“In short, for every new dollar the IRS will spend helping Americans understand the endlessly complicated federal tax code, the agency will spend roughly $23 new dollars on enforcing those same rules,” Reason added.

The Congressional Budget Office data says, “Democrats’ tax and spending spree will more than double Americans’ chances of being audited as it targets lower and middle-income earners. The proposal will lead to an additional 1.2 million IRS audits each year, nearly half of which will hit middle class families making less than $75,000.”

‘Nearly half of these audits — over 583,000 — would be on Americans making up to $75,000 a year’

“All this so Democrats can wring an extra $200 billion out of the American people, particularly from middle-class families and small businesses,” the report added.

The report continued, “Nearly half of these audits — over 583,000 — would be on Americans making up to $75,000 a year. Even the lowest income Americans would see more audits with a quarter of these audits — over 313,000 — hitting Americans making up to $25,000 per year.”

“This also will mean more than 800,000 more federal tax liens on taxpayer property such as homes and vehicles,” the report observed.
