The President of the United States, Joe Biden, recently announced the American Families Plan. The plan aims to expand the economic growth advantages to all Americans and help the middle-class strata grow. The plan has a lot to look forward to, and everyone is expected to benefit from it. With so many benefits for every stratum of society, the plan will be the game-changer. It also brings us to a question about how people are going to pay for it.

Interest Earned, Losses Sustained, and Capital Gains of a Taxpayer

With increased enforcement of IRS and rules like a tax increase for the wealthy and reporting obligations to financial institutes, the plan has a lot to discuss and clarify. The plan has several aspects with its column that will be focusing on ensuring tax payment owed by people. In simple words, the plan will call financial institutions and banks to report interest earned, losses sustained, and capital gains of a taxpayer. These institutions are expected to report aggregate account inflows and outflows.

According to Forbes- “Simply put, the American Families Plan calls for banks and other financial institutions to report more than just a taxpayer’s interest earned, capital gains and losses. Banks and other financial institutions would also be required to report “aggregate account outflows and inflows.” In other words, the IRS will know about all of your bank accounts, whether you earned income on that account or not, how much is in the account in a given year, and how much was transferred in and out of the account.” [1]

IRS To Know More about Individuals Financial Situation

Simply put, the IRS will now come to know a lot about individual bank accounts and whether or not a person has earned income or incurred losses, how much did a person earn in one account year, transactions from the account, and more. When this plan comes into force, it will put a lot of pressure on financial institutions as they will have a lot of compliance effort to make. At the same time, it will allow the IRS to know more about a person’s financial situation.

IRS Audit

There is no obligation on the part of the taxpayers to report the amount of money they have in their accounts. Self-employed Americans, on the other hand, self-report their income. They also inform the authorities about deductions to the authorities. Wage-earners report wages to the IRS. Since the authorities do not have accurate and complete information about business bank account balance, withdrawals, deposits, etc., they cannot catch self-employed taxpayers if they are making an honest mistake or lying about their earnings. Resorting to tax cheating by making outlandish deductions can invite IRS audit, but it is very tough to identify or track the cases of under-reporting revenues.

IRS to Ensure Proper Taxes are Paid

With the American Families Plan coming into force, the option of under-reporting of business’s gross revenues and self-employed taxpayers is going to get eliminated. It will help the IRS take into account the gross earnings of businesses and self-employed and ensure proper taxes are paid. How this plan is going to be beneficial in the long run remains to be seen.
