IRS - Time to Come Clean - a "Private Collection Agency"

From within the Federal Government's own Consolidated Financial Statement (FCFS) 1999, the IRS is NOT listed as a Federal Operation either direct or as a Federal Enterprise operation in the appendix section.

http://cafr1.com/STATES/FEDERAL%20-%20FINANCIAL%20STATEMENT/FEDERAL%201999.pdf

There are 14 incidents where the acronym IRS is used and always in the context by reference to "collections". By omission in the FCFS and inference in Senate reports the IRS is classified as a "Civilian" "Private" operation, or a "Private Collection Company" contracted out by Congress. In the Federal Report linked above on page 108, it states: "the IRS acting on behalf of the Federal Government."  It is noted what is stated is "in behalf of" and NOT "as" or "for".

I have found no tie with any Federal agency by ownership or authority over the IRS. All federal documentation ONLY makes "recommendations" to the IRS thus acquiescing to no governmental authority to direct management ownership control over the IRS.

Any legal action against the IRS it appears should bring forward the above and motion for immediate discovery as to the IRS's true "Civilian" corporate identity and require production of the audited Financial Report of the IRS as the assigned "Civilian" "Collection Agency" under contract with "Congress" of the United States of America. It appears that only two bodies have liability for the IRS's actions. The IRS itself as a private contract "Collection" agent for Congress, and Congress as the assignor.

Government as a body is not the first line liable party. A beneficiary yes, direct owner no.

It is noted in the Senate Reports that IRS prepares two audited Annual Financial Reports, one for collections requirements and one for their own operations. I have found the GAO audit of the IRS's financial statement of Collection requirements and procedures as the contract agent but not the Financial Statement of the IRS themselves, only what was audited by GAO ( http://GAO.gov ), I note that in GAO's own audit report it notes several times IRS reporting as being "UNAUDITED". 

IRS's own Annual Financial Report I have not found yet . Reference as noted from the Federal Consolidated Financial Report (FCFS) 1999, Page 40: Financial Audit: IRS' Fiscal Year 1999 Financial Statements (GAO/AIMD-00-76, February 29, 2000).

The GAO Audit report of the IRS can be downloaded here:

Jump to page 89 and 90. (Data for the 1999 report gives 1997's info shown)

Personal individual income of the USA is listed as 5 trillion dollars (add across all in Gross Income column)  and corporate at 15.5 trillion dollars (add across all in Total Receipts column) .

After Corporate deductions it left the largest corporations with about a 1.5% tax bill and for personal income (page 89) after deductions for the largest personal individual incomes a 27.04% tax bill.

SUBCOMMITTEE ON OVERSIGHT

THE HONORABLE J. J. PICKLE (D. , TEXAS), CHAIRMAN,

SUBCOMMITTEE ON OVERSIGHT, COMMITTEE ON WAYS AND MEANS,

U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES,

ANNOUNCES A HEARING TO REVIEW

THE ADMINISTRATION'S PROPOSALS RELATED TO

INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE TAX SYSTEMS MODERNIZATION



The Honorable J. J. Pickle (D. , Texas) , Chairman of the Subcommittee on Oversight, Committee on Ways and Means, U.S. House of Representatives, announced today that the Subcommittee will conduct a hearing to review the Administration's economic stimulus and public investment proposals related to the implementation of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Tax Systems Modernization. The hearing has been scheduled for Tuesday, March 30, 1993, beginning at 1:00 p.m., in room B-318, Rayburn House Office Building. The Subcommittee will receive testimony from representatives of IRS and the U.S. General Accounting Office.

The IRS effort to redesign its automated information systems — commonly known as Tax Systems Modernization, or TSM — is the largest computer modernization project ever undertaken by a civilian
branch of the Federal Government. TSM has a total estimated price tag of $23 billion. Through fiscal year 1992, approximately $830 million had been expended for TSM, with an additional $565 million appropriated for fiscal year 1993. In addition, the House-passed economic stimulus package includes $148.4 million in supplemental funds to buy IRS computer and telecommunications equipment in fiscal year 1993. About $41 million of this amount is directed to acquisitions which are a part of the TSM effort. (The additional $107.4 million is for replacement of obsolete equipment
used in current IRS operations.)

Currently, IRS relies on technologies developed in the 1950s and 1960s which are highly dependent on paper and labor. With the completion of TSM, slated for the year 2001, IRS envisions a dramatic change in the processing of tax returns and administration of the Internal Revenue Code. The use of paper will be minimized, with increased reliance on electronic transmission, processing, storing, and retrieval of tax data.

The President's "A Vision of Change for America" includes modernization of IRS as an initiative to be undertaken for increased public investment in revitalized technology. The President states that "TSM will enable IRS to reduce the risks and costs associated with operating their current systems while also improving their ability to serve the public in the administration of the nation's tax systems into the 21st century."

In announcing the hearing, Chairman Pickle stated: "The IRS has high hopes for TSM, as do I. Once all its pieces are in place, TSM should revolutionize the way IRS does business. At present, however, TSM is still in its early stages. Thus far, the major accomplishment of the TSM effort is the nationwide capability to transmit and process certain returns electronically. Exactly what the taxpaying public can expect by the year 2001 remains a mystery to most.


"The Subcommittee's hearing will provide the public and the Congress with specific information about IRS's plans for and progress in implementing TSM. Most importantly, hearing testimony will outline what tangible benefits TSM will provide for taxpayers when they call, write, or deal with IRS."  [END]

Pension funds pay a salary and benefits at retirement. Any local government can be restructured to meet their annual budget needs "Without" taxes. TRF (Tax Retirement Funds) paying for every City, County, State’s annual budgetary needs! This now makes the people the true owners with government being the true service provider. Government has already shown that a TRF works by example through the management of their own combined multi-trillion dollar pension funds! CAFR1 says: Make it law and make it so!
