Boustany, Lewis Request Information on IRS Technology Budget
Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Chairman Boustany stated : “Over the last decade the IRS has spent nearly $20 billion on information technology. Taxpayers deserve to know if they are getting their money's worth. These funds must be targeted at making it easier for families and businesses to comply and increase the IRS’s ability to detecting fraud and protecting hard-earned taxpayer dollars.”
Ranking Member Lewis stated : “The IRS’s information technology budget has increased to more than $2 billion annually over the last three years. I would like to ensure that the investments being made improve both taxpayer service and tax administration. Our voluntary tax system will be strengthened if we provide taxpayers with more technology to meet their tax obligations and provide the IRS with better computer systems to process tax returns quickly and detect fraud."
