Thursday May 26, 2022 – The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Data Book is published annually by the IRS and contains statistical tables and organizational information on a fiscal year basis. The report provides data on collecting the revenue, issuing refunds, enforcing the law, assisting the taxpayer, and the budget and workforce.
The IRS is very good at compiling statistics, and breaking those statistics down into categories. The 2021 Data Book was released today. It will take some weeks for me to review all that data.
Because my practice focuses on helping people with tax problems, the first table I look at is Table 25. Delinquent Collection Activities, Fiscal Years 2020 and 2021. This chart breaks down the collection numbers.
