National Taxpayer Advocate Erin Collins Delivers Her First
Report to Congress

National Taxpayer Advocate Erin M. Collins today released her first report to Congress, identifying taxpayer challenges arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and the IRS’s implementation of the Taxpayer First Act (TFA) as priority issues the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) plans to focus on in the coming year.

“I am proud to advocate for taxpayers’ rights and to work toward improving the taxpayer experience to ensure a fair and just tax administration. The effects of COVID-19 will continue to be felt for the foreseeable future. We will continue to identify areas where taxpayers’ needs are not being met and will continue to advocate for alternative approaches to meet those needs.”
