Obamacare Gives IRS Sweeping Powers

Monday, 19 July 2010 08:43 AM EDT

National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson warns that with ObamaCare, the IRS is now responsible for "the most extensive social benefit program the IRS has been asked to implement in recent history" -- and without "sufficient funding" it won't be able to discharge these new duties, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.


Those new duties include audits to determine who has the insurance "as required by law" and collecting penalties from Americans who don't. Companies that don't sponsor health plans will also be punished. This crackdown will "involve nearly every division and function of the IRS," Olson says.

Republicans argued during the health debate that the IRS would have to hire hundreds of new agents and staff to enforce ObamaCare.

The IRS says it hasn't yet computed how much extra money and manpower it will need.
