Rep. Ted Budd has sponsored H.R. 9092, the Family and Small Business Taxpayer Protection Act. The bill would rescind the new funding provided to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) in the “Inflation Reduction Act” for increased enforcement, including the hiring of 87,000 new agents. The bill was originally introduced by Rep. Adrian Smith (R-NE).

Rep. Budd said in a statement:

“We should not be hiring 87,000 more IRS agents to treat working families like tax cheats. Instead of making life harder for middle class Americans struggling under the weight of the Biden Recession, those funds should be used to further fund our police and border patrol as they battle the rise in crime and drug trafficking caused by the Biden open border policy.”

The bill has 49 cosponsors, including Representatives Randy Feenstra and Mariannette Miller-Meeks.
