According to Nina Olson, with the National Taxpayer Advocate service, the IRS is BROKE. What does this mean? It means more work is getting done by computers and less is getting done by actual employees. In fact, good luck getting ahold of anyone helpful at the IRS now. It seems that the IRS budget cuts
will mean longer hold times than ever this tax season. IRS employees are overworked, underpaid, and grouchy about it already. Imagine how much worse it can get!
Even the IRS seems concerned with the lack of taxpayer protection these IRS budget cuts
have caused. It seems that identity theft sky-rocketed with the 2011 electronically filed returns, and there isn't much they can do about it with so little money. Their concern may have more to do with what a 72% increase in returns marked as fraudulent by their computers will do to their over-taxed (pun mostly intended) employees.
Sometimes, people ask me why they shouldn't just handle their tax problems on their own. Well, there is the good possibility that you do not have the required tax knowledge to put yourself in the best situation. Another big reason is this, it takes a GREAT deal of time to do all of this accurately yourself. Just finding out what your current IRS status is could take you hours. Do you really have the time and resources to tackle your tax problems and get the tax relief you deserve?
