Comptroller candidate Harvey Hilderbran released his first online campaign ad Monday. The two-minute video focuses on what Hilderbran calls “big government liberals” who are “using the IRS as a weapon against good folks, just because they’re conservative.”

In an interview on Capital Tonight last week, Hilderbran explained how he would use the comptroller’s office to expand communication between the state and the IRS. 

“One of the areas we see is an opportunity to be a resource. The comptroller’s office has tax experts,” he said. “We know both state tax policy and federal tax policy and how it interacts. If we find people are being abused by the IRS, we can inquire. We can engage the IRS. We already have a relationship with them.”
