The Protecting Taxpayers Act
July 30, 2018
H&R Block applauds U.S. Senators Rob Portman (R-OH) and Ben Cardin (D-MD) for introducing the Protecting Taxpayers Act. This bipartisan legislation puts taxpayers first by advancing sensible improvements to the overall efficiency and management of the IRS. For many Americans, the tax event is their largest and most important financial transaction of the year. We strongly support both establishing Taxpayer Service Standards to prevent incompetent and/or unscrupulous actors from hurting taxpayers, and we support strengthening the IRS’ ability to take timely and effective action against identified bad actors. Both efforts will do much to protect taxpayers.
