WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week, U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield (KY-01) voted in support of four bills to hold the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) more accountable to the taxpayer.  A description of each of the bills is included below.

H.R. 4885: IRS Oversight While Eliminating Spending (OWES) Act of 2016

H.R. 1206: No Hires for the Delinquent IRS Act

H.R. 3724: Ensuring Integrity in the IRS Workforce Act of 2015

H.R. 4890: to impose a ban on the payment of bonuses to employees of the Internal Revenue Service until the Secretary of the Treasury develops and implements a comprehensive customer service strategy

Whitfield released the following statement in support of these bills:

“Monday was the deadline for millions of Americans to file their taxes, an unfortunate annual exercise is dealing with what has become the epitome of federal bureaucracy.  The IRS continues to neglect taxpayers and struggles to perform its most basic functions while providing bonuses to its own employees and targeting groups the Obama Administration disagrees with.  These bills are a step forward in providing accountability to a bureaucracy that has suffered an erosion of confidence by the American people who fund it.”
