IRS’s Game-Changing Plan To Extract $561 Billion From The Elite!

On February 6, 2024, the IRS released a new analysis stating that the amount of unpaid and overdue taxes they expect to collect from 2024 to 2034 is hundreds of billions of dollars more than previously stated. The new information was brought forth as a step towards creating more detailed estimates for future IRS funding as well as proving that IRS funding results in even bigger revenues.
In addition, this new analysis helps support President Biden’s economic agenda while he works to be re-elected. It highlights the importance of the IRS and their work to make sure that the wealthy pay their fair share in taxes.

How The Inflation Reduction Act Empowers The IRS To Enhance Tax Collection

In 2022, the Inflation Reduction Act was passed which focuses on climate and clean energy. As a part of the act, the IRS was given $80 billion in order to bolster forces and make the wealthy pay their taxes as well as rebuild and modernize the IRS’s efforts. However, through Republican-led budget cuts and other agreements, much of that money was diverted elsewhere.
Since these reductions, the IRS has worked hard to use the money they have left in order to address the growing tax gap. They implemented new customer service improvements and have recently announced their recuperation of nearly half a billion dollars from wealthy tax evaders since the start of the tax season January 29th.

Decoding The Surge In Revenue Estimates: The Strategy Behind The Numbers

When the estimates for how much revenue could result from the Inflation Reduction Act originally came out, they were based exclusively on increasing the IRS enforcement staffing. They did not take into account the many other innovative changes made.
Other influences on increased revenue include:

  • Upgrading the services that promote voluntary tax payment
  • Updating the IRS’s technology
  • Using analytics to improve productivity

The state of California implemented many of these tax upgrades over 10 years ago and has seen substantial revenue increase. This demonstrates the benefit of these forces.

Exploring The IRS’s Updated Revenue Projections: A $561 Billion Opportunity

The estimated revenues are suggested to increase by nearly $561 billion from 2024 to 2034. Originally, the act was estimated to increase revenue by $180.4 billion from 2022 to 2031 due to the Inflation Reduction Act. The new analysis states that they could even reach as much as $851 billion from 2024 to 2034 if the Inflation Reduction Act funding is renewed.

Balancing The Scales: The IRS’s Approach To Audits & Equity

Getting taxpayers to actually pay their taxes is the biggest challenge the IRS faces during tax season. Audit rates for the wealthy dropped by over 70% between 2010 and 2019 and big corporations saw 50% less audits!
Believe it or not, according to the IRS the tax gap, which is how much money is owed versus actually paid, has become more than $600 billion every year. The new initiatives aim to reduce that amount!
Many people were worried that these new efforts and audits would start to affect taxpayers in all income brackets. The good news for many is, the IRS was directed not to raise audit rates on anyone making $400,000 a year or less.

IRS’s Audit Focus: Identifying The First Targets In The Wealthy Bracket

In order to reverse the amount of taxes lost by tax evasions, the IRS has announced that it will start expanding audits of some specific entities including:

  • The largest corporations and complex partnerships
  • Foreign-owned corporations that are not paying taxes as they should
  • 1,600 millionaires with at least $250,000 in owed taxes

Facilitating Compliance: The Impact Of IRS Initiatives On Tax Filing

The benefits of the Inflation Reduction Act’s funding for the IRS will not only allow them to pursue wealthy tax evaders, but also make paying taxes for those who comply easier. The goal is to have top-notch customer service, reducing wait times, more guidance on how to file taxes, online accounts for filing electronically and independently.
In the end, the hope is that taxpayers will have the tools they need to file their taxes correctly the first time! This ensures that it is simple to pay what they owe and they are able to quickly and easily claim their tax benefits. Because of making taxes easier and more straightforward, the IRS hopes to see an increase in revenue.
