Bipartisan Changes Slated to Redesign IRS
Big changes could be in store for the IRS if a legislative package that is currently receiving bipartisan support passes through Congress.
Over the past year and a half, lawmakers have sought information from the American Institute of CPAs, the National Association of Tax Professionals, and other interested parties about what changes needed to be made. In March, lawmakers began creating a foundation for the package of bills. In April, Chairman of the Ways and Means Subcommittee on Oversight Lynn Jenkins, a Republican, and ranking Democratic member John Lewis introduced the bill package to positive reviews.
The package includes a number of bills that would make several substantial changes to the structure of the IRS and its procedures. Many of these changes will affect taxpayers, and it’s important that you work with a tax attorney in Arizona to stay abreast of the changes and how they will impact you specifically.
Some of the changes proposed in the new package of legislation include:
Some proposals considered in the new legislative package have already been killed in debate. Examples include regulations for unenrolled tax return preparers and a reorganization of the IRS into three separate entities. Though these proposals have been killed, there is no guarantee that they won’t be revised and reintroduced.
There is no word on when these proposed changes might move through Congress, or when anything might get a vote. The package could move quickly, or it could take years to see any concrete changes. The best thing that taxpayers can do is to stay abreast of the news and keep in close contact with a Phoenix tax lawyer.
