Spending cut bright spot: Fewer IRS audits

New York (CNNMoney) – Thanks to the government's spending cuts, you may have a smaller chance of being audited this year.

The cuts, known as the sequester, will wipe $600 million from the IRS's budget this year, forcing the agency's nearly 100,000 employees to be furloughed without pay for up to seven days.

    I'm sure tax cheats like Willard "UBS" Romney love this.

    Here's a better idea – why don't you simplify the tax code and wipe out the IRS altogether?

    As usual, this will benefit the wealthy more than the poor and working poor, we may get an extra car payment, they get an extra car
