Abstract:

Because of your interest in IRS timely intervention to help employers- particularly those with a small business--avoid the pyramiding of taxes, interest, and penalties, you asked us to review various aspects of IRS efforts to notify and intervene with employers concerning delinquent employment taxes. Accordingly, this report discusses 1 how long IRS takes to notify employers of employment tax delinquencies 2 what types of intervention programs and initiatives IRS uses for employers with delinquent employment taxes and how IRS evaluates the effectiveness of these efforts and 3 what new intervention programs or initiatives IRS is developing as part of its modernization efforts.
