Inflation Reduction Act Oversight

On August 16, 2022, the President signed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 (IRA) into law. The legislation authorized approximately $79.4 billion in supplemental funding for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) through September 30, 2031. Approximately $1.4 billion in IRA funding was later rescinded under the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023, which reduced the IRS’s supplemental funding to almost $78 billion.

The IRS will use the supplemental funding to improve taxpayer services, update antiquated computer systems, and increase compliance and enforcement actions against high-income taxpayers and large corporations that try to evade taxes. TIGTA will use the $403 million in supplemental funding that it received from the IRA through September 30, 2031, for enhanced oversight of IRS operations.
