National Taxpayer Advocate Releases Report to Congress

National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson has released her 2018 Annual Report to Congress. In her last Annual Report, released in January, 2019, Olson addresses tax law questions, navigating the IRS, economic hardship, aging IT systems, and more problems encountered by taxpayers. She outlines recommendations for new federal tax laws or changes to current ones.

The National Taxpayer Advocate is also releasing the 2019 National Taxpayer Advocate Purple Book. In it, she presents a concise summary of 58 legislative recommendations that she believes will strengthen taxpayer rights and improve tax administration. Most of the recommendations have been made in detail in prior reports but others are presented in this book for the first time.
