Paperback, 26 pages, 2011, $20.00
According to the IRS, as of the end of FY 2010, the balance of reported unpaid federal taxes was about $330 billion. Given the many challenges that IRS faces, the enforcement of the tax laws and the tax code is on a list of high-risk areas. This report: (1) determined the magnitude of known unpaid federal taxes for individuals who were issued passports in FY 2008; and (2) identified examples of passport recipients who have known unpaid federal taxes. To identify examples for detailed audit and investigation, the report chose a non-representative selection of 25 passport recipients based on a number of factors, including the more egregious amount of federal taxes owed. Charts and tables. This is a print on demand report.
