The IRS Appears To Have A Few More Fans

It’s tax season, but are Americans feeling better about the Internal Revenue Service these days?

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 42% of American Adults still have an unfavorable opinion of the nation's tax collector, with 13% who view it Very Unfavorably. Slightly more (45%) regard the IRS favorably, including another 13% who share a Very Favorable view. Fourteen percent (14%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
