In light of this week being “Tax Week” the House Small Business Committee and Vice Chairman U.S. Rep. Blaine Luetkemeyer (MO-03) held a hearing to discuss tax reform, among other issues, with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner John Koskinen.

“Today the House Small Business Committee had the opportunity to question IRS Commissioner Koskinen about a variety of topics, including tax reform and the agency’s continued mismanagement. Earlier this year, I received news the Jefferson City IRS Taxpayer Assistance office had been closed in the midst of tax season. When I pressed Commissioner Koskinen for answers as to why this would happen and why employees were not trained months ago in preparation of tax season, he admitted the agency failed to provide the aid that Mid-Missouri taxpayers need. After hearing Commissioner Koskinen answer questions from the Committee, it is clear that IRS leadership has failed to effectively manage the agency to provide support and resources to taxpayers across the country that they need on a timely basis.”
