Collectively, those improvements are projected to bring in $203.7 billion in revenue from 2022 to 2031, according to recent estimates from the Congressional Budget Office.<br>However, if the Inflation Reduction Act is approved by the House and signed into law, it will take time to phase in the added IRS funding, explained Garrett Watson, a senior policy analyst at the Tax Foundation. The Congressional Budget Office only estimates about $3 billion of the $203.7 billion in revenue for 2023.<br>"My colleagues claim this massive funding boost will allow the IRS to go after millionaires, billionaires and so-called rich 'tax cheats,' but the reality is a significant portion raised from their IRS funding bloat would come from taxpayers with income below $400,000," Sen. Mike Crapo, R-Idaho, ranking member of the Senate Finance Committee said in a statement.
