National Taxpayer Advocate Releases Report to Congress

National Taxpayer Advocate Nina E. Olson has released her 2017 Annual Report to Congress. In the two-volume report, released in January, 2018, Olson addresses 20 of the most serious problems encountered by taxpayers, and includes recommendations for new federal tax laws or changes to current ones.

The National Taxpayer Advocate is also releasing the inaugural edition of the National Taxpayer Advocate Purple Book. In it, she presents a concise summary of 50 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.
