John Koskinen, IRS commish

Now that tax season is undeniably here and all of the requisite forms are ever so diligently finding their way to the IRS’s mailboxes, here is a video from IRS commissioner John Koskinen outlining a few of the circumstances the average tax payer can expect this year.

Is it just me or did you find the video oddly reminiscent of this one?

You see the problem is that the IRS is undermanned and underfunded. On top of those huge billion dollar concerns, it had a tiff in Cincinnati in 2013 and now it looks bad and still can’t properly answer all its phones.

With a career of turning ships around, John Koskinen was hired as the new commissioner. You can watch the hearing Koskinen gave before Congress in December here.
