Nina Olson (National Taxpayer Advocate) presents The State of the IRS at Minnesota today as part of its Perspectives on Taxation Lecture Series hosted by Kristin Hickman:
Drawing from her 2017 Annual Report to Congress, Ms. Olson will talk about problems facing the IRS and the implications for tax compliance and enforcement, including:
- IRS funding and personnel cuts
- Declining audit rates
- Flawed implementation of congressional mandates requiring the use of private debt collectors and the denial of passports to certain U.S. citizens with substantial tax debts
She will also address possible solutions to these problems.
