TXCPA Committee Recommends Congress Direct the IRS to Implement Scanning Technology

In a letter this week to U.S. House Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) and Ranking Member Kevin Brady (R-TX), TXCPA’s Federal Tax Policy Committee urges Congress to require the implementation of more modern technology for processing federal income tax returns. The technical tools the committee discussed are the same tools that the National Taxpayer Advocate advised the IRS to implement in her 2023 Objectives Report to Congress and includes use of bar coding and optical character recognition. This technology should alleviate the reported 20% error rate due to manually processing the estimated 8 million paper returns that the IRS receives annually.
