IRS Plan to Collect Taxes

Posted by Daren Bakst at 5:32 PM

The IRS is outsourcing some tax collection responsibilities to some private firms.  This policy brings up many issues: serious privacy and taxpayers' rights questions, and it would cost more than simply hiring agents.  The flip side (at least to some) is it might be a more effective way to collect taxes.

Apparently, the House already has passed an amendment that would deny funds for this program.  The Senate hasn't taken action on it.  It may not seem that interesting, but I think this IRS policy brings up a lot of serious and competing concerns.
