Who Else Opposes IRS Budget Cuts?

NTEU has long warned that slashing the IRS budget year after year hurts not just the agency’s employees but all taxpayers. Now, independent commentators are echoing NTEU’s warning, as these recent opinion pieces illustrate:

NTEU Calls for Higher Mileage Reimbursement Rates for Federal Workers

Now that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has raised its standard mileage reimbursement rate, NTEU is urging the government to implement the increase for federal employees.

Earlier this week, the IRS announced it is increasing the gas mileage reimbursement rate from 56 cents a mile to 57.5 cents, effective Jan. 1. President Colleen M. Kelley responded with a letter to the head of the General Service Administration asking him to consider an equal rate adjustment at the beginning of the calendar year for federal employees using personal vehicles on official business.

“I am sure you are aware that vehicle operating costs have created a great burden for federal employees who use their personal vehicle for government business,” President Kelley wrote to GSA Administrator Daniel Tangherlini. “After three years of pay freezes followed by two years of raises of a mere 1 percent, many federal employees are financially pressed.” Read the letter
