Wyden Statement on Senate Passage of Taxpayer First Act

Senate Finance Committee Ranking Member Ron Wyden, D-Ore., today released the following statement on Senate passage of the Taxpayer First Act:

“Americans interact with the IRS more than any other federal agency. Passage of the Taxpayer First Act will modernize the agency, allowing it to better serve taxpayers. Our bill includes critical provisions to improve customer service, protect personal data, preserve tax-preparation services and shield low-income taxpayers from abusive private debt collectors. Going forward, I will be closely tracking the IRS review of the Free File program and working to achieve a public filing program run by the IRS.”
