South Dakota Congresswoman Kristi Noem who serves on the House, Ways and Means Committee, is back in South Dakota where she was a guest of the Watertown Rotary club Thursday.  When asked about the IRS Noem wasted no time taking the IRS to task for what she said has been years of mismanagement.  She took aim at the Federal agency for diverting funds away from customer service to fund other areas of the IRS, that she says were frivolous.

 

Noem says she gets the fact there are people who have written checks to political entities, but that it’s not the job of the IRS to target people.  She said it’s their job ensure taxes get paid and paid fairly.  The Congresswoman says the IRS was purposely diverting money away from customer service and that many in Congress believe the motivation was to make it look like they needed more money so their activities would continue to receive more funding from lawmakers.
