In a recent audit, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) evaluated the Taxpayer Advocate Service’s (TAS’s) response to CARES Act issues. “TAS has taken numerous actions to assist taxpayers in response to the enactment of the CARES Act,” the audit said. However, the audit determined that “TAS accepted cases that did not meet its criteria and did not properly track CARES Act issues.” TAS developed criteria specifying the types of issues it would accept. However, a statistical sample of TAS cases showed that 18% of the cases accepted didn’t meet TAS criteria. Read the audit:
