WASHINGTON - The chairman of the U.S. House of Representatives tax committee said on Wednesday he had canceled a hearing on the impact of the partial government shutdown on the Internal Revenue Service and the federal tax season because Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin declined to attend.

Representative Richard Neal, the Democratic chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said in a statement that the panel wanted to hear from Mnuchin "to gain greater clarity regarding the IRS’ capabilities during the shutdown" in the hearing scheduled for Thursday."The Secretary declined to come speak with us, so I am cancelling the hearing," Neal said, adding that he expected Mnuchin "to come answer our questions in the very near future."
