This week, Republican Ways and Means Committee Leaders Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX) and Rep. Mike Kelly (R-PA) went to the White House for the signing ceremony of the Taxpayer First Act.
These bipartisan reforms, which are now law, are the boldest step in over 20 years to redesign and restructure the IRS. We are turning the IRS into an agency with a singular mission: providing quality, taxpayer service.
As Rep. Brady said, “This bipartisan law requires the IRS to submit to Congress in 2020 a plan to redesign the agency so that it serves taxpayers first. For the first time, it puts into law a truly independent appeals process so our taxpayers claims are heard fairly.
“It also levels the playing field to ensure taxpayers have the same information as the agency, better protects our taxpayers information, and reins in past IRS abuses to guarantee families and local businesses never have to fear having their accounts and property seized without fair and due process.”
