WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Ways & Means Committee Chairman Richard E. Neal (D-MA) released the following statement after President Trump signed the Taxpayer First Act into law: 

“This signing is the culmination of a lengthy, bipartisan process undertaken by the Ways and Means Committee to implement pro-taxpayer reforms at the IRS for the first time in more than 20 years. New protections for low-income taxpayers, practical enforcement reforms, and upgraded assistance for taxpayers and small businesses will all now go into place. 

“I applaud Congressman John Lewis’ unwavering commitment to this legislation over the years – thanks to his tireless work, the IRS will be a more just agency, and taxpayers will benefit from improved services and safeguards.”
