House Holds Hearing Today On Minding The Tax Gap: Improving Tax Administration For The 21st Century

The House Ways and Means Committee is holding a hearing today at 12:00 ET on Minding The Tax Gap: Improving Tax Administration For The 21st Century (livestream):

  • House LogoSteven Dean (Brooklyn) (testimony:  "In my testimony today, I will explain why a race-blind approach to tax enforcement produces bad tax policy. I will use three very different examples to show why leaving race out of the equation fails to prevent bias and how destructive that bias can be for everyone. Ignoring race doesn’t solve problems, it creates them. You have already heard from ProPublica that the ten most heavily audited counties in the United States are Black and poor. I will tell you how we can do better.")
  • Janet Holtzblatt (Tax Policy Center) (testimony)
  • Mark Mazur (Deputy Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy, U.S. Treasury Department) (testimony)
  • Doug O'Donnell (Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement, IRS) (testimony)
  • Nina Olson (Center for Taxpayer Rights) (testimony)
