The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) released its annual report on the IRS’s compliance with improper payment reporting requirements for Fiscal Year 2014.  The report found that the IRS provided all required improper payment information to Treasury with the exception of reporting an overall earned income tax credit improper payment rate below 10 percent.  TIGTA found that “the IRS is unlikely to achieve an improper payment rate below 10 percent without expanded authorities to address identified erroneous claims.”  The report noted that with correctable error authority the IRS would be able to significantly reduce improper payments.  The IRS and the Assistant Secretary of the Treasury for Tax Policy have put forth a legislative proposal requesting correctable error authority.
