Source: Washington Free Beacon | 13 Apr 16 | Ali Meyer

IRS Commissioner John Koskinen told lawmakers on Wednesday that implementing a flat tax would be simpler than the current tax system and would save the agency a lot of money.


Luetkemeyer asked Koskinen for more specifics about how much of the IRS’ current budget of $11.2 billion could be saved if a flat tax were implemented.

“I can’t give you a guess, but it would be a lot,” Koskinen said. “It’d clearly be a sea change, a difference in the way the place operates.”

Rep. Steve Chabot (R., Ohio), the committee chair, called for the tax code to be simplified.
