IRS Says It Will Improve Whistle-Blower Program Amid Outcry

The Internal Revenue Service will review its tax whistle-blower program to improve its backlog and working practices, after the program came under fire from politicians and lawyers.

The IRS will work with “internal and external stakeholders” on a “comprehensive review” of the agency’s guidelines and procedures for handling whistle-blower complaints, Deputy Commissioner for Services and Enforcement Steven T. Miller said in a two-page memo to senior IRS officials posted on the agency’s website yesterday.
