Resistbot Petition: Reject funding cuts to the IRS and TAX THE RICH!

An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Reject funding cuts to the IRS and TAX THE RICH!

1,297 so far! Help us get to 2,000 signers!

Thanks to the infusion of funding provided by the Inflation Reduction Act, the IRS was able to collect $160 million from millionaire tax cheats, notify Microsoft that it owes $29 billion in taxes, and announce the audits of 60 giant corporations that together make more than $500 billion in profits each year. Research shows that for every $1 spent on making sure that wealthy tax cheats pay what they owe, we see, on average, a $22 return. Yet some Republicans are trying to cut the IRS’s new funding. I find this outrageous. With our debt being what it is, why would we take away one of the best ways we’ve got of reducing it? Also, paying taxes is a civic duty and ensures a healthy democracy. Most ordinary Americans pay the taxes we owe every year. Why should the ultra-wealthy be any different? I urge you to reject funding cuts to the IRS. Thanks.
