Tax Week Met With Votes for IRS Accountability

WASHINGTON – Congressman Bruce Westerman (AR-04) joined his House colleagues this week in voting for measures to hold the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) accountable to American taxpayers. Monday (April 18) was the final day for taxpayers to submit tax returns, payments or extension requests for tax year 2015.

“On Monday, taxpayers across America were completing their tax returns and in many cases, paying large tax bills as a result of higher taxes imposed by the Obama administration,”Westerman said. “In response, the House this week has voted on numerous tax bills that would hold the IRS accountable and protect taxpayers from an agency whose power is out of control. A change in our tax laws is long overdue and while the House has not fixed everything this week, it is a first step on the long road to a fairer tax code and a smaller government. The American worker deserves to keep as much of their hard earned money as possible, and they deserve a tax system that is fair and transparent.”

The following bills were passed by the House this week:
