If you make a decent income, you better watch out because the IRS is planning to audit more high-income taxpayers according to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. During a House Ways and Means Committee Hearing on the president’s 2020-2021 budget, Mnuchin said “I have specifically directed the IRS Commissioner to come up with a plan to increase the amount of funding so that we can audit more high-income earners. That is specifically in our plan.” The IRS is also recently conducting more audits with lower-income taxpayers as well. Nobody is safe!
