Welcome to our new blog about the frequently changing landscape of IRS and state tax law enforcement. Both the IRS and many states have increased civil and criminal tax law enforcement. The IRS is targeting more taxpayers than it has in decades. It is hiring more revenue agents, conducting more audits, and has launched new efforts in the area of foreign bank account reporting enforcement.
The two authors of this blog are both former government tax attorneys whose experience covers all areas of tax law litigation and enforcement. Through this blog they hope to share their views on government’s evolving positions on their new programs and general enforcement efforts.
