AML Conversations: A Look into the IRS with Former Head of IRS CI

By AML RightSource | August 25, 2022
There have been outrageous comments made by “policymakers” about the IRS since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. AMLRS Chairman of the Advisory Board John Byrne talked to former IRSCI Chief Don Fort about the facts regarding the IRA funding, the mission of IRSCI, and the impact misinformation is having on staff. Here’s a taster of some of the questions discussed: Question: There have been questions and a lot of information (misinformation) out there about the substantial funding the IRS is going to get as part of the Inflation Reduction Act, $80B over 10 years. For example, “87,000 armed agents” is being repeated in the media. Remind us of the important work IRS-CI does Explain the facts around “87,000 armed agents?” Question: What’s your take of these statements in the media? Question: What’s the real-life impact to those working for IRS-CI from these types of comments? Question: IRS-CI works more than just tax cases - are there examples of cases that IRS-CI works that have broad national and international importance? Question: How will the IRS use this funding?
