Congress Calls for IRS Changes Amid Backlog

David A. Sprecace, P.C.

On January 26th a bipartisan group of senators and representatives called on the Internal Revenue Service to make temporary changes to its collection policies while it clears the backlog of 6 million unprocessed income tax returns, 2.3 million unprocessed amended returns, and 2 million quarterly employer tax returns. 

The letter states: “When our constituents cannot get assistance from the IRS and TAS, they contact us, and we have our hands tied at this point as well.”  Among other things, the lawmakers are asking the IRS to suspend automated tax collection for 90 days, streamline the “reasonable cause” penalty abatement process, and provide targeted tax penalty relief for taxpayers who paid at least 70% of the tax due for 2020 and 2021.
