Today, Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on the passage of H.R. 1957, the Taxpayer First Act of 2019:

"The IRS is stuck in the 20th century, which hurts hardworking taxpayers here in North Carolina and all across the country. Today, the House has taken a meaningful step towards reforming and modernizing the agency. By embracing innovation, the IRS can better fulfill its mission: serving the American taxpayer."

Included in the Taxpayer First Act is H.R. 2007, the IRS Data Verification Modernization Act of 2019, which was introduced by McHenry. The IRS Data Verification Modernization Act allows small businesses and consumers to access accurate credit assessments more efficiently. You can learn more about that bill here.
