FILE- In this April 13, 2014 file photo, the Internal Revenue Service Headquarters (IRS) building is seen in Washington. The rich aren,€™t taxed enough and the middle-class is taxed too much.

The findings also add weight to Obama,€™s new push to raise taxes on the rich and use some of the revenue to lower taxes on the middle class. (AP Photo/J.
