On Monday, March 11th President Biden proposed a fiscal 2025 budget requesting $12.3 billion in annual funding supporting the IRS’s momentum as it builds up its enforcement efforts on both non-compliant high-net worth individuals and business entities alike.

While the proposed IRS annual funding for fiscal 2025 aligns with fiscal 2023 levels, it is a decrease from President Biden’s $14.1 billion proposal for the fiscal 2024 budget. The Biden administration drafted its fiscal 2025 budget so that total annual appropriations were in line with levels agreed to in a debt-limit law last year. The IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel has said that 'it’s important for the IRS to receive robust annual funding to support the agency’s day-to-day operations, so that funds from the Inflation Reduction Act passed into law in August of 2022 can be used to properly modernize the IRS'. The additional $12.3 billion in annual funding will help bolster the IRS’s efforts to combat blatant fraud, update its technology systems and go after non-compliant taxpayers.
