Natasha Sarin: Investments in the IRS and What They Mean for American Taxpayers
Funding for the IRS is dropping. And that means the agency is doing less to go after tax cheats. Yale Law Professor Natasha Sarin argues that the IRS needs stable, long-term funding so it can modernize its technology and hire the workforce it needs to operate efficiently. Join us as she leads a discussion on the intricate dynamics between investments, the IRS, and their significant implications for American taxpayers.
Sarin’s presentation begins at 5:00pm on Monday, December 11th, followed by a Q&A moderated by SIEPR Director Mark Duggan. You are invited to a cocktail reception at 4:30pm.
