WASHINGTON — Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) issued the following statement on the IRS’s announcement that it will extend the tax filing deadline to May 17.

“Democrats’ $1.9 trillion bill continues to cause chaos, to the point that delaying tax filings in order to accommodate the law’s provisions may be a wise decision.

“If you thought tax day during a surprise pandemic was hard, wait until you see tax day during a pandemic, with huge non-emergency regulations and tax hikes from Democrats.”
