Statement of IRS Commissioner Mark W. Everson on the FY 2007 Budget


Notice: Historical Content

This is an archival or historical document and may not reflect current law, policies or procedures.

The Administration’s 2007 budget proposal shows a strong commitment to the work we’re doing at the IRS. The overall $10.7 billion operating budget is a responsible request in light of the current budget environment.

The proposed budget strikes a good balance between maintaining our commitment to taxpayer service and continuing to reinvigorate enforcement efforts. The proposal continues support for our priority technology modernization projects.

An important part of the request involves the new legislative proposals to address the tax gap.  We know from our research that compliance is greatest where there is third-party reporting.  The Administration’s proposal would give us new tools to improve tax compliance.
