REPORT: The IRS is in trouble
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by TheHill.com:
The IRS faces a number of challenges as a result of the recent 35-day government shutdown, including a backlog of correspondences and a decline in the level of service on its telephone lines, the agency’s in-house watchdog said in a report released Tuesday.
“The five weeks could not have come at a worse time for the IRS — facing its first filing season implementing a massive new tax law, with a completely restructured tax form,” National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson wrote in her annual report to Congress. “The IRS is entering the filing season inundated with correspondence, phone calls, and inventories of unresolved prior year audits and identity theft cases.”
The article goes on to state the following:
The IRS was one of a number of agencies that had its funding lapse during the shutdown, which occurred as a result of disagreements between President Trump and congressional Democrats over funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. During the shutdown, most IRS employees were furloughed or working without pay. The shutdown ended just days before filing season’s Jan. 28 start date.
