WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Internal Revenue Service is being warned against using funds from the Inflation Reduction Act to audit households that make less than $400,000 dollars a year.

That’s according to a letter Treasury Secretary Janet Yellin sent to IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig.

In the letter, the money allocated from the new health care and climate bill should focus on “high-end non-compliance.”

Republican critics of the $80-billion-dollar act say it will allow the IRS to target middle-class families and small businesses.

The new funds for the IRS are expected to collect $124-billion-dollars in tax revenue over the next decade.

The legislation was approved by the senate this weekend but still needs to get through the Democratic-led House.
