Press Release

WASHINGTON, DC — Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) released the following statement after meeting with Acting IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel earlier this afternoon:

“Acting IRS Commissioner Werfel and I had an hour-long, frank conversation about the recent issues the IRS has been facing and the need for him to rebuild the trust in the agency. Not only did the IRS mislead the American people about the recent systematic targeting of organizations based on their political beliefs, but they also knowingly misled my office. Additionally, we discussed the continuing need for more preventative measures against identity theft and tax fraud, serious problems in my district and the nation. Mr. Werfel knows he has a monumental task of restoring Americans’ trust in the government, and I look forward to working with him.”
