Jason Smith, the new GOP chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, is already making good on his promise to expose IRS abuses that Biden pretends aren’t happening.
Smith has established a new system for IRS employees to confidentially blow the whistle on illegal or inappropriate mishandling or leaking of private taxpayer information. The website is waysandmeans.house.gov/
Smith says a top priority of Ways and Means will be to provide “aggressive oversight of the agency.”
The IRS has a long history of abuses and foul-ups from Lois Lerner’s denial of non-profit status to conservative groups before the 2012 election to the recent scandal in which the confidential information of over 100,000 taxpayers with individual retirement accounts was revealed.
