IRS: We Need $359 Million to Deal With Obamacare

IRS: We Need $359 Million to Deal With Obamacare, the agency is seeking to increase its resources in preparation for Obamacare implementation for 1,054 new auditors and staff — at a cost of $359 million to taxpayers.

The increase request is due to the enormous challenges the agency faces, according to US News & World Report. Among the requests to meet those challenges: new facilities; new IT systems; modification to tax processing systems; taxpayer outreach services; and changes to notices, case management, and collections methods.

To keep up with the healthcare overhaul, a task force of 76 agents will oversee drug makers and importers to ensure they adhere to new fees.

Another 81 members will be assigned to handle the tax reporting of tanning salons, which face a new 10 percent tax on tanning services.
