The spending bill that President Obama signed into law on Friday provides an increase in funding to the Internal Revenue Service, a rare win for an agency that has been on the outs with congressional Republicans.

Lawmakers specified that the additional funding is to be used for “taxpayer services to ensure that the agency responds to taxpayer questions in a timely manner, and to improve fraud detection and prevention and cybersecurity,” according to a summary from Republicans on the House Appropriations Committee.
