Thursday April 7, 2022 – Today, IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig said “The IRS could wipe out its massive backlog of returns by the end of the year.” To do that, the IRS has revealed a Surge plan and a new hiring plan that would ad another 10,000 employees.
The IRS Commissioner also revealed ““53% of the employees are in a full-time telework capacity. The rest of the employees either have a blended capacity or they are onsite.”
The good news? Rittig told the committee “We are currently running around 19 to 20 percent level of service.” That’s up from 1 in 9 calls being answered.
Attorney Steven A. Leahy reviews Commissioner Rittig’s testimony before the House Ways and Means committee.
