CCH Tax Day Report
National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson will hold the next public forum to discuss what taxpayers want and need from the IRS to comply with their tax obligations on Tuesday, August 30, at 8:30 am, at the Maestro Entrepreneur Center, 1811 S. Laredo St. San Antonio, TX 78207. The forum will be co-hosted by Rep. Lloyd Doggett, a member of the House Committee on Ways and Means and the Ranking Member of its Subcommittee on Human Resources, and will feature an invited panel of representatives from the local area.
Building on initiatives already implemented, the IRS for the past two years has been developing a “Future State” plan that envisions how it will operate in five years and beyond. A central component of the plan is the creation of online taxpayer accounts as a convenient but nonexclusive channel through which taxpayers will be able to obtain information from and interact with the IRS. The purpose of the public forums is to ensure the “Future State” plan will better reflect the needs and preferences of U.S. taxpayers as they seek to comply with the tax code.
