This could begin in Washington


Obama seeks to double tax law enforcement budget

President Barack Obama proposed on Thursday nearly doubling funds to enforce U.S. tax laws next year, with an aim of more than quadrupling funding for tax compliance to $2.1 billion within five years.
Considering the number of tax cheats in Congress, and the high number of Obama appointees with tax troubles, it would make more sense to start looking for better compliance close to home. Just a few extra bucks for the Washington bureau might bring in a fair amount.
