Taxpayers Win! Ernst Forces Audit of the IRS

WASHINGTON – The auditors at the IRS will be audited themselves, thanks to U.S. Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa), the Senate’s biggest foe of government waste.  At the senator’s request, the U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) has agreed to review if the employees of the tax collecting agency have paid their own taxes. Previously, more than 1,200 IRS employees were found to be delinquent on their federal tax bills, with the agency doing little to discipline its tax evaders.

“I’ve heard enough of the excuses and these Washington double standards – the IRS needs to play by its own rules. On behalf of taxpayers in Iowa and the rest of the country, I am grateful that the IG has agreed! Before Biden’s army of auditors starts harassing innocent taxpayers, let’s first make sure the tax collectors have paid their own taxes,” said Ernst.
