RELEASE: Becker Opposes HR 5376 And Proposes New Protections For Workers

Susie Lee voted for the so-called “Inflation Reduction Act” and unleashed more spending and 87,000 additional IRS agents on Americans that cannot afford any more of the reckless policies that have caused a 40-year high in inflation.

Analysis shows that middle-class Americans will bear the brunt of the IRS audits resulting from 87,000 new hires.

While Susie Lee continues to carry Joe Biden’s water, voting with the President 100% of the time, April Becker is standing up for middle-class Nevadans. Becker is proposing an update to the Taxpayer Bill of Rights.

Decades ago, when Democrats cared about the American worker, former Nevada Senator Harry Reid championed the Taxpayer Bill of Rights because of the protections it offers taxpayers when dealing with the IRS. In Congress, Becker will propose legislation strengthening those protections now that Susie Lee has put taxpayers at risk.

Becker’s proposal strengthens the Taxpayer Bill of Rights by including protections to ensure that the IRS cannot use the taxpayer’s occupation as part of the Discriminant Function System (DIF) or the Unreported Income DIF. These computer programs are used to determine which individuals will be audited.

“As a former waitress, I know that the IRS targets our hardworking service industry members,” said Becker. “These workers mostly live paycheck to paycheck and have to worry about putting food on the table. They shouldn’t also have to worry about an audit from Susie Lee’s new 87,000 IRS agents. Senator Reid, along with Senator Chuck Grassley, led a bipartisan effort to stand up for taxpayers, something that has been lost on the modern Democrat party.”
