When Mayor Vincent C. Gray's budget team sifted through revenue-generating ideas for the coming fiscal year, they placed them in "yes" or "no" piles and let the executive choose among concepts "on the bubble," his budget director said.
"If you focus on one, you're not spending as much time on the others," Mr. Kautter said of the IRS political targeting. "I think there has been a misuse of resources and a poor allocation of resources. It's got to have implications for the rest of the system."
At least one change, an adjustment in withholding expected to generate $19 million, amounts to a "one-year, interest free loan" to the city that will be paid back in refunds, Mr. Kautter said.
