A total of $21.4 billion in IRS funding agreed upon by Republicans and President Biden would be cut as part of the debt ceiling agreement
An initial analysis from the Budget Office of Congress was released on Thursday that estimated $21.4 billion in IRS funding cuts that President Biden and Republicans agreed to enact as part of their debt ceiling solution proposal would result in $40.4 billion in lost tax revenue.
