IRS Troubles

If you have had to experience the difficulty of getting a hold of the IRS at any point this year, there is a reason.  Staffing reductions are said to have contributed to 8 million dropped calls in 2015, not including those which went unanswered.  But the staffing issues also made it less likely for individuals to be audited.  The individual audit rate dropped to just 0.84% – the lowest in over 10 years.
