    After the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) delivered more than $1.5 trillion in economic relief to low-income families during the pandemic, Capital Hill widened its policy window for more government assistance to go through the tax system. This memorandum identifies five factors policy advocates should consider as they work to expand new or existing anti-poverty programs (APPs) through the IRS.
