Shrinking the $7 trillion so-called tax gap has long been an aspiration for policymakers and scholars, but it is taking on new urgency as the Biden administration looks to win bipartisan support for its infrastructure proposal. Their work is about to get more scrutiny as lawmakers debate how much money the I.R.S. A bipartisan group of senators were coalescing around a proposal this week that would provide the I.R.S. Top Republicans have scoffed at the Biden administration’s proposal to give the I.R.S. $80 billion over a decade, arguing that the agency cannot be trusted with more money and power.

Justin Tallis/Pool via REUTERSWASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen on Wednesday said a recent unauthorized disclosure of Internal Revenue Service taxpayer data by news outlet ProPublica was “a very situation” and vowed to take steps to shore up data protection, if necessary. Asked about the news report, which cited tax returns by thousands of the wealthiest Americans, Yellen said Treasury had referred the matter to the Justice Department and Treasury’s inspector general for tax administration, but it was still unclear how the data breach occurred. “We don’t have any facts at this point,” she said. “But it is absolutely a top priority to safeguard taxpayer data.”

Global Tax Deal Holdouts Face Squeeze Under Biden Administration Plan

WASHINGTON—Some countries might try to stay outside the emerging agreement to impose a global minimum tax on corporations so those nations can use low tax rates to attract businesses. The Biden administration aims to deflect those attempts with a powerful Shield. The plan, which would require the approval of Congress, aims to leverage the size of the U.S. consumer market to give other countries a choice: impose a minimum tax or watch the U.S. tax your companies and take your revenue. The Shield faces some significant potential hurdles in Congress, along with likely resistance from foreign governments and multinational businesses. “Instead of this being called the Shield it should be called the sword, because that’s the way it’s intended,” said Bob Stack of Deloitte Tax LLP, who was a Treasury Department international tax official during the Obama administration.

Several leaders appointed by President Donald Trump are staying in their high-level postsOn Democrats' wish list for removal are the Social Security Administration commissioner and his deputy. Biden has asked some Trump appointees to stay on, including FBI Director Christopher Wray. But there are other officials appointed by President Donald Trump who are sticking around in their high-level posts in the Biden administration. Term limits and other circumstances keep a small portion of about 4,000 political appointees in their jobs when an administration changes hands. Here are nine Trump-era officials continuing in top government positions months after he left office.

Private Equity’s Biggest Tax Tactics

Private equity has conquered the American tax systemThe $4.5 trillion buyout industry “has perfected sleight-of-hand tax-avoidance strategies so aggressive that at least three private equity officials have alerted the Internal Revenue Service to potentially illegal tactics,” according to a new investigation by The Times. These previously unreported whistle-blower claims involved dozens of private equity firms, Jesse Drucker and Danny Hakim report. audits of private equity firms are “almost nonexistent,” said Michael Desmond, who stepped down this year as the I.R.S.’s chief counsel. After ProPublica’s recent revelation that some of America’s richest men paid little or no federal taxes, the push to tax private equity may gain new momentum. Like those before him, his ability to increase private equity’s tax burden will face resistance in the form of the industry’s formidable lobbying operations, which have derailed many past efforts.

The IRS is sending "plus-up" payments to Americans who didn't get their full third stimulus check. The extra money is going to some people whose 2020 tax returns were processed after checks went out. A stimulus check is a non-taxable cash payment sent to qualifying Americans by direct deposit, check, or debit card. As the IRS continues processing 2020 tax returns, it will continue topping off some people's stimulus payments in weekly batches. The only way to let the IRS know is to file a 2020 tax return ASAP.

A big misconception about bitcoin is that it's anonymous and untraceable, CoinFlip's Ben Weiss said. Using bitcoin to launder money is one of the stupidest things to do, he said. That's why one of the most stupid things anyone could do would be to attempt to launder dirty money using bitcoin, Weiss said. The US government can track bitcoin transactions with the help of blockchain analysts and through serving seizure warrants authorized by district courts, he said. "You're really playing with fire if you tried to today," he said, adding that bitcoin transactions are more traceable than cash.

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos didn't pay any income taxes for at least two years between 2006 and 2018, ProPublica reported. Tesla CEO Elon Musk also skipped paying federal income taxes in 2018, according to the report. Billionaires are able to circumvent federal income taxes through legal financial manipulation. In 2007, and again in 2011, billionaire Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos reportedly paid nothing in federal income taxes. How do men with such dramatically high net worths avoid paying federal income tax?

While not illegal, tax avoidance strategies can seen as unethical, says business ethics scholar Erin Bass. It claims to provide an insight into how prominent billionaires such as Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Michael Bloomberg take advantage of "tax avoidance strategies" beyond the reach of ordinary people. An individual who adopts the deontological perspective likely evaluates a public figure's tax avoidance strategies — and that of others — with less scrutiny. For example, someone may use tax avoidance strategies and direct some wealth to provide funding directly to an academic health care center for cancer research. But if that person employs tax avoidance strategies in the absence of any other virtuous behaviors, then the tax avoidance is likely to be seen and rationalized as unethical.

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell also told the group his was open to their ideas, Republicans said. Schumer said work was still progressing on two tracks - one a bipartisan infrastructure bill and the other a measure that if brought to the floor, could pass with only Democratic votes through a maneuver called reconciliation that bypasses the rule requiring 60 votes for bills to advance. Biden and Schumer have talked about such a two-track approach“I was told verbally, stuff, I’ve asked for paper, I’ll look at it,” Schumer said. He and Democratic Senator Jon Tester also spoke of a provision that might raise revenue by having the Internal Revenue Service go after tax cheats. In the latest bipartisan discussions, Republican lawmakers said the group reached tentative conclusions on specific spending provisions that it would pay for without raising taxes.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) -A bipartisan group of 10 U.S. senators said on Thursday it had reached agreement on a framework for a proposed infrastructure spending bill that would not include any tax increases. The senators said they were discussing their approach with their colleagues and the White House, and they were optimistic about getting broad support. “Our group ... has worked in good faith and reached a bipartisan agreement on a realistic, compromise framework to modernize our nation’s infrastructure and energy technologies,” the lawmakers said in a statement. Democratic U.S. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said earlier on Thursday he was open to a bipartisan infrastructure bill but wanted to see it in writing. Republicans say Biden’s infrastructure plan puts too much money into addressing climate change and building up some social programs.

In prepared remarks, Deputy Assistant Secretary Mark Mazur told Congress on Thursday that the so-called tax gap will only worsen over the next several years without more funding from lawmakers. He added that the estimate of the gross tax gap is around $580 billion for 2019 alone. "Over the coming decade, the gross tax gap is projected to total approximately $7 trillion, roughly 15 percent of all owed taxes," Mazur told House lawmakers. "A larger tax gap generates the following results: higher tax rates elsewhere in the system, lower revenues to fund the nation's fiscal priorities, or higher budget deficits and larger amounts of federal debt," he added. Mazur blamed the persistent and growing tax gap on insufficient funding for the Internal Revenue Service.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Treasury Department has asked law enforcement authorities to investigate the disclosure of tax records cited in a media report that showed that some of America’s richest people paid little to no income taxes, U.S. officials said on Tuesday.

Treasury Department spokeswoman Lily Adams said in an emailed statement that the matter has been referred to the FBI, federal prosecutors and two internal Treasury Department watchdogs, “all of whom have independent authority to investigate.”The IRS, part of the Treasury Department, is the nation’s tax-collecting agency and many tax records are considered confidential documents. ProPublica described the records as “confidential” and did not disclose how it obtained them.

Return of the IRS Scandal

Less than half a year into the Biden Presidency, the Internal Revenue Service is already at the center of an abuse-of-power scandal. Leaking such information is a crime, since under federal law tax returns are confidential. The story arrives amid the Biden Administration’s effort to pass the largest tax increase as a share of the economy since 1968. The main Democratic argument for a tax hike is that the rich should pay their “fair share.” The ProPublica story is a long argument that somehow the rich don’t pay enough. “What this data reveals is that the country’s wealthiest—who profited immensely during the pandemic—have not been paying their fair share,” Mr. Wyden said.
