Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) made the following statement upon announcement that Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Acting Commissioner Steve Miller would resign effective early June.
“The American people should be able to trust and have faith that, not only the IRS, but that the tax code will treat them fairly. This resignation does nothing to change the culture of discrimination at the IRS. And, it certainly does nothing to change the fact that the tax system is targeting honest, hardworking taxpayers instead of working for them. There are still far too many unanswered questions and until we know what truly happened, we cannot fully fix what is wrong. This Committee wants the facts, and the American people deserve answers to why they were targeted on the basis of their political beliefs. The IRS has demonstrated a culture of cover up and has failed time and time again to be completely open and honest with the American people. This investigation will continue so Congress can ensure that no taxpayer is unfairly targeted.
"The Committee and the American people deserve honest answers from Mr. Miller at our hearing this Friday."
