Today, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) released a report evaluating the IRS’s process for auditing partnerships.  TIGTA recommends that the IRS: (1) develop a strategy to measure the success and productivity of all partnership audits; (2) develop a system that will determine the amount of taxes assessed as a result of all partnership audits; (3) ensure that audit closing and assessment efforts are included in productivity measurements; (4) update audit report writing software to accommodate certain types of adjustments; and (5) coordinate with Treasury to assess the impact that proposed changes to the tax law would have on the IRS’s partnership audit process.
