Resistbot Petition: Increase funding for IRS Direct File! It’s awesome!

An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Increase funding for IRS Direct File! It’s awesome!

897 so far! Help us get to 1,000 signers!

As your constituent, I am urging you to increase funding to the IRS so they can expand the wildly successful Direct File program to all 50 states. Between January 1st and April 15th of 2024, over 140,000 taxpayers across 12 pilot states used Direct File, receiving more than $90 million in refunds and saving an estimated $5.6 million in tax preparation fees. This was only possible due to the multi-billion dollar investment in the IRS via the Inflation Reduction Act. For too long, private tax preparation companies deliberately misled taxpayers to extract more fees or intentionally made it more difficult to find the free version of their offerings. American taxpayers deserve to easily pay their taxes online -- and do so completely free. Please increase IRS funding so that the Direct File program expands to all states and supports additional sources of income for independent contractors and people who have investments. Thanks!
