Any way you look at it, the IRS is a failed institution. Millions of tax returns go unprocessed delaying refunds for millions of taxpayers. Phone calls go unanswered. Jobs go unfilled. Antiquated equipment doesn’t work, and tax evasion is running rampant costing the government nearly $1 trillion a year.
