US House Passes IRS Reform Bill

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

13 June 2019


On June 10, 2019, the United States House of Representatives approved legislation which would reform the rules governing the Internal Revenue Service.

According to a summary of the bill by the Congressional Budget Office, the Taxpayer First Act (H.R. 3151) would improve services for taxpayers and the processes for assisting taxpayers with appeals. It would also tackle identity theft and fraud.

Additionally, the bill would restrict certain IRS enforcement activities, modify the agency's organizational structure, change the operations of the US tax court, create an automated system to verify taxpayer information for authorized users, modernize information technology systems in the IRS, and expand the use of electronic information systems within the agency.

The bill must also be approved by the Senate before it can be signed into law.
