House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) expects "heads to roll" at the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) over billions of dollars in improper refunds.
Rogers told Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Thursday that he was appalled at an IRS inspector general report that found the agency had overpaid up to $13.6 billion in low-income tax credits.
