IRIS Audits More Under Dem Control

The comprehensive study of the agency’s activities dating back to 1978 shows that Democratic control leads to more spending on the agency (big surprise, we know).

“Democratic control of the Senate is correlated with an increased IRS budget and workforce. The president’s party has a statistically significant impact on the number of IRS enforcement personnel when both houses of Congress are controlled by Democrats,” the research, published last week in the Journal of Public Policy, said.

The increased hiring leads to an uptick in audits for individual and corporate tax filers.

Via IRS ‘significantly’ more likely to audit taxpayers under Democratic control @ Personal Liberty.
