IRS TARGETS HIGH-INCOME TAXPAYERS

The IRS is targeting high-income taxpayers who have not complied with their tax obligations.IRS

As part of a larger effort to ensure compliance and fairness, the Internal Revenue Service said on February 19th that it will step up efforts to visit high-income taxpayers who have failed to timely file one or more of their tax returns.

The IRS has recently hired additional enforcement personnel, and with this additional staff, IRS revenue officers across the country will increase face-to-face visits with high-income taxpayers who have not filed tax returns in 2018 or previous years.

The visits will focus on high-income non-filers with income in excess of $100,000 during a tax year and who did not file a tax return with the IRS.

The IRS stressed that taxpayers having delinquent filing or payment obligations should consult a competent tax advisor and not wait to be contacted by an IRS revenue officer. “It is always worthwhile to take advantage of various methods of getting back into filing or payment compliance before being personally contacted by the IRS.”

For this new initiative, the IRS noted that these high-income taxpayers have typically received numerous letters from the IRS over an extended period of time, so they generally realize they have a tax issue.
