IRS: Where We Stand on Enforcement

IRS Commissioner Mark Everson released 2005 enforcement statistics today in the midst of claiming progress toward the three stated goals of his tenure--improved taxpayer service, greater modernization and augmented enforcement. Everson asserts that enforcement revenues from audits, collections and document matching, are up about 10% to a record $47.3 billion. Audit rates on high-income taxpayers and businesses increased over the previous year, with just over 1.5% of individual/family taxpayers with incomes over $100,000 being audited and small business corporation audits more than doubling. Additional highlights included passing the 50% mark on electronic filing and new highs for accuracy of toll-free telephone assistance (89%) and toll-free user satisfaction (95%).
