Office supplies - binder tabs/dividers

Binder tabs/dividers come in packages with numbers 1-20 or letters A-Z. The high number/letters rarely get used in briefing books, and ultimately get discarded. The lower numbered/lettered tabs often run out, while the office has a surplus of unneeded tabs with the higher numbers/letters. If the suppliers provided packages with more 1-3s and A-Cs and fewer of the rest, there would be less wasted paper and less wated... more »

Paper & Postage Reduction Cost - Dual Notice Requirement

Currently, any correspondence to taxpayers who file a joint return with the IRS require separate notices to the husband and wife. This results in additional costs for paper, printer, toner, postage, envelope, and other associated expenses.

While this requirement should not be eliminated entirely, the requirement should revise to allow married filing joint taxpayers to sign a waiver allowing examiners, collection officers,... more »

Government Savings

So I'm responding to the inquiry about ways the gov can save money.

Most, however could utilize... more »

Dropbox on Every Federal Agency Building

There should be a dropbox on every Federal Agency building.

The dropbox allows the American Taxpayer/claimant/citizen to have access to providing information to that Agency 24/7.

Currently, a person takes a letter or documentation to the postal service to mail to an agency. This causes delays in mail, with the mail sometimes being lost. If the agency had a dropbox on the building, the person could take it there immediately,... more »

Unnecessary Employees

We were recently informed that two tax examiners were hired to support our unit. Thses individuals are not located in the same city where the bulk of our team is located. The function these two people are to perform could easily be performed by the remainder of the team on their individual cases. By eliminating these positions it will save $85,920 in salary alone.
