Taxpayer Advocate's Office- Want some interesting reading?

Each year the IRS Taxpayer Advocate's Office or "TAO" puts out an annual report to Congress on areas of improvement needed in the IRS. The TAO is intended to be an independent, unbaised arm of the IRS that would allow for taxpayers, in hardships, to utilize this resource to cut through the "red tape." The reality of this is for a future blog entry. This year, like every other year, the TAO asks for improvements in the IRS Collections process. Specifically, the TAO criticizes the IRS for again restricting access to the Offer in Compromise program.

I have blogged on this subject in the past. The IRS should make the OIC program more accessible to those who qualify. If you want to know if you qualify, consult a tax professional.
