Congressman Scott Perry (R-PA) said that the decision to hire 87,000 new IRS agents is an attempt to persecute law-abiding citizens. Do you agree with this statement?

When discussing the warrant to sieze his cell phone on Tuesday, Rep. Perry said the following:

These kinds of banana republic tactics should concern every Citizen — especially considering the decision before Congress this week to hire 87,000 new IRS agents to further persecute law-abiding Citizens.

He’s referring to a provision in the Inflation Reduction Act which would give the agency money to hire more agents, which would allow them to more effectively audit more complex tax returns.

Questions:

What are your opinions on this particular provision in the Inflation Reduction Act? Do you agree with hiring 87,000 new agents? Why or why not?

Do you agree with Rep. Perry that law-abiding citizens will be unfairly targeted or persecuted by the IRS in the coming years?

What, if anything, should be done to collect taxes that are legally owed but unpaid?
