The IRS issued its four-year strategic plan today, which lays out the IRS’s “primary goals and objectives” through 2017.  The plan describes how the IRS anticipates that it will “ensure high performance in a more streamlined footprint of work” in the face of “the challenge of declining resources.”  The plan focuses on high-level objectives, such as investments in workforce and technology, greater involvement of stakeholders ranging from tax practitioners to software providers to community coalitions, improved customer service, and anti-fraud efforts.
