Professor Ventry Comments for New York Times on Proposed IRS Budget Cuts

Professor Dennis Ventry commented for the New York Times on President Trump’s proposed cuts to the budget of the Internal Revenue Service, which the Times describes as “already bleeding staff and struggling to keep up with a flood of returns ahead of Tax Day.”

“This is an agency that has had every last drop squeezed out of it,” said Ventry, a member of the I.R.S. advisory council. “I don’t know how it’s going to sustain itself.”

Professor Ventry is an expert in tax policy and legal ethics. His research interests include tax expenditure analysis, family taxation, professional responsibility and standards of care, tax filing and administration, tax compliance, public finance, and tax and legal history. In addition, he is a member of the IRS Advisory Council, and co-author on the casebook, Federal Income Taxation with Martin McMahon, Jr., Daniel L. Simmons, and Bradley T. Borden.
