The IRS Small Business and Self-Employed business unit released its Fiscal 2021 Focus Guide -- It’s Still the Time -- laying out the compliance and service strategies for the coming year.
OUR CORE MISSION
Help small business and self-employed taxpayers understand and meet their tax obligations, while applying the tax law with integrity and fairness to all.
Our mission promotes voluntary compliance by focusing on renewed presence, ensuring public transparency, taking enforcement action every time it’s appropriate, and informing and empowering taxpayers.
STRENGTHEN COMPLIANCE ACTIVITIES
Take enforcement action every time it is appropriate (consider COVID-19 impact).
- Take action to mitigate risks of non-compliance and evolving threats.
- Expand use of all civil penalties including those used infrequently.
- Use the badges of fraud to identify and develop civil and criminal fraud cases.
LEVERAGE TECHNOLOGY AND DATA ANALYTICS
Use research and data analytics to propose solutions for non-compliance, emerging issues, and better serve and understand the public.
Expand SB/SE digital and virtual service options to improve the taxpayer experience and foster voluntary compliance.
DEVELOP OUR WORKFORCE
Hire a diverse workforce with the skills and abilities necessary to meet our business goals. Supply all employees with the training necessary for a highly skilled workforce reducing the chances of business disruption. Safeguard the health and safety of employees while still delivering mission-critical functions.
