And paying for more IRS agents.
I spoke to my Conservative Enrolled Agent gnome on this.
Her claim is that the 16,000 are not for Obamacare and the IRS refuses to enforce it.
What is scarier is what they will do with the 16,000 in a sense.
They are staffing up for the the testing that will occur next year for tax professionals to aquire a new federal license and Earned Income Credit checking / enforcement.
For one I believe her. The EIC is a nightmare with all the funky new households with multi-generations living together and everybody broke and out of work, that leads me to believe their must be a ton of bad-files in this area, by self filers, maybe even pro's..... That is a lot to digest and get your arms around....
