MADISON — President Joe Biden’s costly Build Back Better plan calls for hiring 87,000 new Internal Revenue Service agents to badger taxpayers, even as the tax collector has yet to process millions of tax returns.
U.S. Rep. Glenn Grothman (R-Glenbeulah) and nearly 100 of his congressional colleagues want answers.
“This massive backlog is causing significant and unnecessary burdens for families and small businesses who can’t get answers from the IRS about why their returns have not been processed. The IRS is in danger of falling into a vicious backlog cycle that will harm millions of taxpayers,” wrote Republican leadership and member of the Ways and Means Committee in a letter to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig.
