Joyce Holds First Hearing as Chairman of FSGG, Questions IRS Commissioner

WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Congressman Dave Joyce (OH-14) held his first House Appropriations Subcommittee on Financial Services and General Government (FSGG) hearing as Chairman. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Commissioner Danny Werfel appeared before the Committee to discuss the IRS’s Fiscal Year 2025 budget request. 

Watch Congressman Joyce’s full remarks here.

“The Fiscal Year 2025 budget request for the IRS is $12.3 billion —which is equal to the current fiscal year. However, the IRS is requesting an additional $24 billion in mandatory funds to rebuild an army of IRS agents and carry out a Direct File system that Congress did not authorize, among other enforcement priorities,” said Congressman Joyce in his opening remarks. “It is our job as appropriators to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars and ensure for the American people that the agencies under our jurisdiction are not wasting money by supporting bad policies that fail to achieve the desired outcomes.”
