IRS Small Business and Criminal Divisions Will Hire Thousands of Auditors by September

The co-commissioners of the IRS' Small Business/Self-Employed Division (SB/SE) and the commissioner of the Criminal Investigations Division (CI) recently announced that they will be hiring thousands of auditors by the end of September 2021. This is if the IRS receives the anticipated FY 2022 budget increase of $1.7 billion more than it received in FY 2021.

IRS SB/SE Co-commissioners De Lon Harris and Darren Guillot plan to hire 1300 field revenue officers, 400 tax compliance officers for “in-person audits" (formerly called "office audits") and 518 automated collection (ACS) phone representatives. Guillot said that when taxpayers receive an IRS notice threatening to garnish wages or levy property, they expect someone to answer the phone.

SB/SE will utilize new personnel to increase compliance in the areas of fuel tax, syndicated conservation easements and employment taxes.

The co-commissioners also expect their largest ACS call center to be bilingual in Puerto Rico. The plan is to increase collection personnel in Puerto Rico from 57 to as many as 400 by the end of 2021.
