WASHINGTON, D.C. – The IRS today released a report analyzing the creation of a free online tool for filing individual taxes, as outlined in the Inflation Reduction Act. Susan Harley, managing director of Public Citizen’s Congress Watch division, released the following statement.
“Americans shouldn’t have to rely on profit-hungry companies as middleman when paying our taxes. Today’s report demonstrates taxpayers’ support for the IRS offering a free online public option for tax filing. Taxpayers should cheer this idea and demand an end to corporate America’s stranglehold on online tax filing services. We look forward to the launch of the pilot program.”
