Tax Analysts contains news, analysis, and commentary on tax administration. As long as there’s a tax system in place, someone’s got to put the rules into action. It’s the IRS’s job to administer the federal tax laws. The agency does this primarily in the form of final, temporary, and proposed regulations, private letter rulings, guidance, policy statements, and technical information.
Tax Analysts provides up-to-the-minute tax administration information and full-text copies of these IRS documents to our subscribers, allowing tax practitioners, interest groups, and anyone else that thrives on the latest tax reform news to know what’s happening almost as soon as it happens.
Hot topics in tax administration focus largely on developments at the IRS, including how the agency copes with cuts to its budget, which in turn can affect tax collection and revenue, taxpayer services, enforcement, and the security of taxpayer information. The IRS has four primary divisions: wage and investment, large business and international, small business/self-employed, and tax-exempt and government entities. Other principal offices include the office of chief counsel, the taxpayer advocate service, criminal investigation, and appeals. Additional offices administer rules affecting return preparers, whistleblowers, privacy and information disclosure, and technology.
