$80 billion could help IRS increase audits of the wealthy, which have dropped in last decade

President Joe Biden's proposal to give the Internal Revenue Service an extra $80 billion to go after tax cheats — which the ol' blog talked about earlier this month in this post — is getting a lot of attention in advance of his nationally televised speech night. I suspect the current IRS hierarchy is pleased, despite the comments to The New York Times by a former commissioner that an extra $25 billion over a decade would be sufficient. "I'm not sure you'd be able to efficiently use that much mo...

Tax Gap likely $1 trillion, thanks largely to cryptocurrency

None other than the IRS commissioner agrees that there is more tax money that's owed than the agency has been able to collect. A whole lot more. At an April 13 hearing before the Senate Finance Committee, IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig estimated...
