Taxpayers could see delays in getting their refunds this year -- as well as "unacceptable" customer service -- as the IRS commissioner warns budget cuts are forcing the agency to cut back.
IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, in an email sent to workers and obtained by Fox News, predicted a messy tax season on several fronts.
"The effect of these cuts will hurt taxpayers and our tax system," he wrote.
He said the cuts could force the IRS to shut down operations for two days later this year, resulting in unpaid furloughs for employees and service cuts for taxpayers.
But in the near-term, the commissioner said cuts in overtime and temporary staff hours could cause delays in refunds.What government has come down to....a blackmail operation. They don't get a big enough budget, so they are going to hurt the ordinary citizen -- unless us chumps pay up.
Remember, Koskinen is the party hack who said that they couldn't find ANY of Lois Lerner's emails. Who said there wasn't any targeting of conservatives and conservative groups. Another Democrat thug, using the power of the government as a club.
Will the public remember come 2016?
