Apr 22, 2016 Mullin' It Over Column

Over the past several years, we’ve seen the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) spend millions of taxpayer dollars without permission, hire people who don’t pay their taxes, rehire people who were once dismissed for misconduct, and give bonuses to employees who aren’t doing their jobs.

This is completely unacceptable, and it almost seems ridiculous that Congress would even have to pass laws to prohibit these things from happening. But as most Oklahomans know, the federal government does a lot of things that just don’t make sense.

Apr 21, 2016 Press Release

WASHINGTON – Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) voted for a series of bills this week that will help rein in the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and hold the Obama administration accountable to Oklahomans.

“We’ve seen the IRS spend millions of taxpayer dollars without permission, hire people who don’t pay their taxes or have a known history of misconduct, and give bonuses to employees who aren’t doing their jobs,” said Mullin. “This week, I voted for four bills that would stop all of these things from happening.”

Apr 20, 2016 Press Release

WASHINGTON – The U.S. House of Representatives voted on Tuesday to make sure the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) does not target or discriminate against Oklahomans who exercise their First Amendment Rights.  

“Constitutional rights can’t be overruled by federal agencies that want to push the president’s agenda,” said Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02). “The fact that we even had to write this bill is ridiculous, but the past has shown us that religious and non-profit groups need protection from the IRS’ illegal targeting.”

Christie and I raise our five kids on the same farm that I grew up on in Westville, Oklahoma. Jim, Andrew, Larra, Ivy, and Lynette are the fourth generation of Mullins to live on the farm, and I want to make sure the farm stays in our family.

I hear too many stories about families who have lost their farms, because our federal tax code treats family-owned businesses, farms, and ranches unfairly. I’m fighting for a bill that would change this.

Apr 8, 2016 Mullin' It Over Column

Most people dread tax season. It seems like in the weeks leading up to the filing deadline, there are endless amounts of information to gather, whether you are filing your taxes yourself or using an advisor.

When the federal income tax code was instituted in 1913, it was only 27 pages. Now, it is over 9,000 pages.

Apr 16, 2015 Press Release

WASHINGTON—Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-02) today voted for a bill that would effectively repeal the so-called death tax that has burdened many family-owned businesses, farms, and ranches. 

“Family farmers and business owners have invested generations worth of capital in order to grow and develop their operations,” said Mullin. “But because the money is tied up in the business or land, families often lack the liquid assets to cover the tax liability when companies or farms are passed down.”

Mar 6, 2013 Press Release
Today Congress approved H. R. 933, the Department of Defense, Military Construction, and Veterans Affairs and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, 2013, a Continuing Resolution (CR) to fund government operations. The bill passed by a vote of 267 – 151. "I voted yes on this bill because it gives our military much-needed flexibility during sequestration and makes the spending cuts that are vital to finally balancing the budget permanent,” Mullin said. “These cuts are real cuts to spending and reign in many out-of-control tentacles of the federal government such as the EPA and IRS.”
