IRS Official: Disneyland Conference May Have Cost $5M

On Thursday, the IRS official at the center of the agency’s scandal involving a lavish 2010 conference at Disneyland that cost taxpayers $4.1 million conceded the price may have been $5 million. 

Testifying before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee on Thursday, Faris Fink, the Small Business and Self-Employed Division Commissioner, admitted he only had 90% of the documentation about the cost of the trip. 

Responding to questioning from Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC), Fink initially said the conference cost $4.1 million. Meadows asked him whether the cost of the conference could have been much higher.

When Meadows asked if the conference “could be $5 million,” Fink said yes. “It could go higher,” he replied. “Absolutely could go to [$5 million].” 

When Meadows asked if the conference could have cost $6 million, Fink said he was not sure of that figure.
