The IRS is tasked with shrinking an already shrinking middle class even more. From Katabella Roberts at 2ndsmartestguyintheworld.substack.com:

The IRS is an unconstitutional “Federal” agency that terrorizes America.

Speaking to Fox Business, Henck disputed claims by the IRS and other officials who have said that increased funding for the agency under the IRA, which is set to be signed into law by President Joe Biden this week, would only lead to more audits for wealthy millionaires and billionaires and large corporations.

“The idea that they’re going to open things up and go after these big billionaires and large corporations is quite frankly [expletive],” Henck said in the interview on Aug. 15. “It’s not going to happen. They’re going to give themselves bonuses and promotions and really nice conferences.”
