Real Time Tax Initiative

The Internal Revenue Service held two public meetings, in December 2011 and January 2012, to gather feedback on a potential new structure that would fundamentally change the way taxpayers and tax practitioners prepare and file individual tax returns and that leverages technological innovations.

In an April 2011 speech before the National Press Club, IRS Commissioner Douglas H. Shulman described a vision in which the IRS would move away from the traditional "look back" model of compliance to a "real time" tax process.

Under this vision, the IRS could embed more information return data into its pre-screening filters, and could provide the opportunity for taxpayers to fix the return before it accepts it - if the return contains data that does not match the IRS' records.

The goals of this long-term initiative are to reduce burden for taxpayers and improve overall service and compliance.

The public meetings featured representatives of consumer groups, the tax professional community, government, the employer and payroll community, the software industry and financial industry.

Free 1040nr   The process of selecting a return for examination usually begins in one of two ways. Free 1040nr First, we use computer programs to identify returns that may have incorrect amounts. Free 1040nr These programs may be based on information returns, such as Forms 1099 and W-2, on studies of past examinations, or on certain issues identified by compliance projects. Free 1040nr Second, we use information from outside sources that indicates that a return may have incorrect amounts. Free 1040nr These sources may include newspapers, public records, and individuals. Free 1040nr If we determine that the information is accurate and reliable, we may use it to select a return for examination. Free 1040nr   Publication 556, Examination of Returns, Appeal Rights, and Claims for Refund, explains the rules and procedures that we follow in examinations. Free 1040nr The following sections give an overview of how we conduct examinations. Free 1040nr By mail. Free 1040nr   We handle many examinations and inquiries by mail. Free 1040nr We will send you a letter with either a request for more information or a reason why we believe a change to your return may be needed.

Free 1040nr Please do not hesitate to write to us about anything you do not understand. Free 1040nr By interview.
