IRS ISSUES REGULATIONS THAT REQUIRE USE OF PERSONAL IDENTIFICATION NUMBERS ON TAX RETURNS

HOUSE APPROVES BILL REQUIRING IRS TO USE 'PLAIN WRITING,' EXCEPT IN REGULATIONS

The House, last week, (March 17) voted 386-33 to approve H.R. 946, the Plain Writing Act of 2010, which requires the IRS and other government agencies to write public documents in "plain writing," defined as "writing that the intended audience can readily understand and use because that writing is clear, concise, well-organized, and follows other best practices of plain writing." 

 

The bill covers all documents issued by a federal agency to the public (whether in print or electronic form). Federal agencies would be required to comply with the rule within one year. But the rule does not apply to regulations.
