In the Cincy campus of the IRS LR sends out a memo 7-8 lines long that states we received your information request or grievance. As the NTEU VP at our campus I suggest the ALERTS SYSTEM be modified to automate this process. When LR logs in each case and inputs the stewards name it would automatically generate a EMAIL to the steward giving the alerts number, date and acknowledge receipt as LR desired. Name of Steward,... more »
IRS SEASONAL EMPLOYEES HIRED TO WORK SIX MONTHS WORK YEAR ROUND. LAY THEM OFF AFTER SIX MONTHS.
1st of all i dont understand why the postal service is required to turn a profit and pay for itself when so many other GOV agensies have no way to do so themselves. 2nd I think it would be prudent in this day and age to combined the Postal Service with the Census and allow them to share information so we can have a more accurate census without spending so much money to have folks walk around doing so when we already... more »
Move to a flat tax on all income. Wages, dividends, capital gains, everything. This would almost eliminate the need for extensive oversight by the IRS, dramatically reduce errors on returns and would save bucket loads of money in adminstrative costs.
My idea is to create an Government skill and/or Project database for use for internal agencey projects. What problem are you trying to solve? At any given moment each agency has over a hundred individual internal projects going on. To get these completed in most cases offices solely use talent within their office.

When a computer generates a W-2 have it create a scanable bar code. This will speed up 1040 processing for filers and for the IRS.
Innovation: Simply stated, the purpose of this suggestion is to reduce the employer reporting burden for those firms having employees in multiple states. In addition, this action would reduce federal costs to process this information; reduce over payments to the unemployed; and, expedite payments to families with child support payments where the worker and the support recipient live in different states. The federal... more »
there are many ways to reduce spending. 1. Eliminate the IRS. The department itsself is not to blame but the lawmakers. Start the "FAIR TAX". Eliminate all federal, state and local taxes and have a national tax on every single item you purchase. Every single person in the United States would be paying taxes. This will include ILLEGALS, Tourists, Drug Dealers, and Gangsters. 2. totally revamp the life-cycle replacement... more »
Currently the arbiter of whether a religious group a church, a ministry, or a cult like pyramid scheme is the IRS. Rather than use federal resources chasing this goose, have churches conform to state corperate regulations. This would go a long when straightening tax questions for religious leaders too.
Yes, this means funding for cities would only be based on those who were in active status with IRS. No this does not mean people have to owe money to be counted by IRS. This would save tens of millions of dollars, if not more.
Streamline income taxes and eliminate filing altogether. People would know what they have to live on at all times and not be waiting around on a refund or to pay in. This not only reduces government overhead for tax filing, prep, collection, etc., but also allows folks to know what they have to live on at all times and plan accordingly.
