Abstract

This White Paper examines fallout from Internal Revenue Service missteps and offers a proven proposal for organizational restructuring and reform by executive action. By now, most agree the Service needs to restore public trust and be turned around – not necessarily to be a beloved tax collector, but to be universally respected for its sense of fair play, independence and competence. For change-makers to make a difference, they will have to think differently. Rebuilding field operations is a place to start.
