The IRS needs to have a better strategy for determining the tax compliance or noncompliance of corporations that do mergers and acquisitions, according to a new report.

The report, from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, noted that corporate M&A deals can be large, complex transactions that potentially have big tax implications.

TIGTA examined the IRS’s approach to tax compliance after M&A deals and found the IRS doesn’t actually have an overall strategy to address potential tax noncompliance of M&A transactions.

The IRS examination managers that TIGTA spoke with for the report claimed that issues related to M&A generally receive the same attention as any other issue.
