The IRS Oversight Board yesterday released the 2013 Taxpayer Attitude Survey (Feb. 2014):
The Board’s survey found that 59 percent of respondents believe that the IRS should receive extra funding to assist more taxpayers, down eight points since last year’s survey. Only 55 percent said that the IRS should receive more funding to enforce the nation’s tax laws, down seven points from 2012. In addition, only 39 percent of respondents believe that the IRS maintains a proper balance between service and enforcement, down four points from last year’s findings.
