Ok, so this post has a chart that indicates that the budget for the IRS has actually gone down steadily since 2010. That seems inconsistent with the chart that I blogged yesterday, which indicates that IRS funding this year is above where it was in 2010, despite a drop in the interim.
I do note, for what it’s worth, that the first chart says it reflects spending, while the second one says it shows discretionary funding, so the two charts could be referring to two different measurements.
Even if the second chart is right, however, it starts with 2010, and therefore doesn’t contradict my point that the drop in 2011-2012 didn’t even reduce the IRS’ spending/budget below the level that existed just two years earlier, in 2009.
