I have been looking at the IRS website which provides sort of an organization chart which says that there are 4 primary divisions:
1. Wage and Investment Div.
2. Large and Mid-Size Business Div.
3. Small Business/Self-Employed Div. (that's the division having the scandal over lavish spending for conferences; Faris Fink is the Dep. IRS Commissioner for this division; he was Mr. Spock for the Star Trek video and he stayed in the presidential suite for $3,500/night)
4. Tax Exempt and Government Entities Div. (that's the division with the scandal over targeting certain groups)
Right now it appears that 2 out of 4 IRS divisions have been audited by the IG and one (Tax Exempt) is now undergoing a full investigation by the IG.
No telling if scandals involving the other two divisions will surface.
I can't find any information on line as to what division is in charge of selecting individual tax returns, companies, or organization tax returns for audit. For example, it has been testified that donors to some of the tax exempt groups were either audited personally or their companies were audited or both. What is the protocol for auditing a person, their company, or an organization?
Anybody on RTF know?
