AICPA to Congress: Fund IRS Sufficiently 

Published September 11, 2013

Accounting Today reported Sept. 5 that the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) is urging Congress to provide “sufficient” funding of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) so that it can perform its duties.  The AICPA’s Sept. 4 letter to Congress warned Congressional lawmakers, Accounting Today reported, that a decrease in funding could result in longer wait times for taxpayers and tax preparers calling the IRS, excessive delays in receiving a written reply from the IRS, an inability of IRS employees to help taxpayers using walk-in assistance centers, a failure to keep taxpayers informed about tax law changes, an exacerbation of current excessive delays in issuing administrative guidance and a slower release of new and updated tax forms.
