Speaking of government agencies and their future plans, none other than the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) actually developed and last week released a new Five-year Strategic Plan focusing on the implementation of the new tax law as a top priority and “improving taxpayer service and tax administration.” The agency has long argued that it needs additional funding from Congress in order to modernize its systems and improve responsiveness to taxpayer needs especially in the wake of taking years of criticism from Congressional republicans. There may be a change afoot however, as just last week, the House Appropriations Financial Services Subcommittee approved $11.6 billion for the IRS in Fiscal 2019, an increase of $186 million over current levels with $77 million targeted specifically for implementing the new tax law. And, in the wake of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act delivering for the economy, House Ways & Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady is already eyeing “Tax Cut 2.0”! The Texas republican plans to introduce another tax cut bill that would largely focus on making lower individual rates permanent and possible extending full expensing for businesses beyond the five years included in the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
