The IRS Electronic Tax Administration Advisory Committee (ETAAC) this week released its annual report for 2023 featuring recommendations to Congress and the IRS that focus on electronic tax administration and cybersecurity. The report was released at a public meeting at IRS headquarters in Washington, D.C. Among its 26 recommendations, the ETAAC annual report advises Congress to provide timely tax legislation and consistent multiyear funding while it urges the IRS to prioritize IRS.gov modernization and search engine optimization.
For tax pro awareness: The IRS is sending a special follow-up mailing to taxpayers in several states affected by disasters to let them know that they have additional time to pay their taxes. The IRS is taking this special step to help reassure taxpayers affected by disasters that they do have extra time to file and pay their taxes. This new mailing is going to residents in California and seven other states in designated disaster areas that received a CP14 notice from the IRS in late May and June. “The IRS is working hard to improve our operations as part of our new Strategic Operating Plan,” said IRS Commissioner Danny Werfel. “We know our initial mailing caused confusion for taxpayers and tax professionals, and we worked quickly to send a follow-up reminder to help reassure people. This mailing reflects how we’re trying to be more taxpayer-focused given the additional resources that we’ve been given under the Inflation Reduction Act.” This news release is also available in Spanish and Simplified Chinese.
The IRS issued a final reminder to nearly 1.5 million taxpayers across the country to claim their refunds for tax year 2019 by filing before the July 17, 2023, deadline. By law, taxpayers normally have three years to file and claim their tax refunds. If they don’t file within three years, the money becomes the property of the U.S. Treasury. The law requires taxpayers to properly address, mail and ensure the tax return is postmarked by July 17, 2023. Visit IRS.gov for more information on ways to gather the necessary documentation to file this return. This news release is also available in Spanish and Simplified Chinese.
Announcement 2023-18 announces that: (1) taxpayers will not be required to report the new excise tax imposed by section 4501 of the Internal Revenue Code on repurchases of corporate stock during a covered corporation’s taxable year (stock repurchase excise tax) on any returns filed with the IRS, or to make any payments of such tax, before the time specified in forthcoming regulations; (2) there will be no addition to tax under section 6651(a) of the Internal Revenue Code (or any other provision of the Internal Revenue Code) for failure to file a return reporting the stock repurchase excise tax, or for failure to pay the stock repurchase excise tax, before the time specified in the forthcoming regulations; and (3) the forthcoming regulations will require covered corporations to keep complete and detailed records to establish accurately any amount of stock repurchases (including repurchases made after Dec. 31, 2022, but before the forthcoming regulations are published) and to retain these records as long as their contents may become material.
