(Un)happy Tax Day!

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Eastern Washington’s Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodgers (WA-05) released the following statement reacting to “Tax Day.”

“It may be a few days later than normal, but Tax Day is still one of the most frustrating days of the year,” said McMorris Rodgers.

“Tax Day is our annual reminder of the clunky, outdated, complicated tax code that frustrates and confuses even the experts. Just imagine how the single mom, graduate student, or the family running a small business feels. You shouldn’t have to contact your Member of Congress to ask the Internal Revenue Service a question. So, this week, the House will vote to hold the IRS accountable and give more peace of mind and confidence to that family or small business who is just trying to do the right thing. This is only one part of our bold agenda to restore a confident America—one that allows Americans to keep more of the money they earn and keeps the American Dream alive for the next generation.”
