Fiscal Year 2007 Enforcement and Service Results
As reported in a statement issued by IRS, it has continued to make strong progress in a number of key enforcement areas. IRS enforcement efforts increased in fiscal year 2007: overall, enforcement revenue reached $59.2 billion, up from $48.7 billion in 2006.
Individual enforcement. Overall, the total individual returns audited was 1,384,563 in 2007 (an increase of 7% from 2006). There were 293,188 audits of individual returns with income of $100,000 or more (an increase of 13.7% from 2006). There were 113,105 audits of individuals returns with incomes over $200,000 (an increase of 29.2% from 2006). Audits of individuals with incomes of $1 million or more increased to 31,382 during fiscal year 2007 (an 84% increase from 2006) with the result that one out of 11 individuals with incomes of $1 million or more faced an audit in 2007.
Business enforcement. Overall, audits of businesses in general rose to 59,516 (an increase of almost 14% from 2006). IRS continued its efforts to review more returns of flow-through entities–partnerships and S corporations. There were 17,681 audits of S corporations (an increase of 26% from 2006), and 12,195 audits of partnerships during 2007 (an almost 25% increase from 2006). Large corporate audits were down slightly, but audits of returns of mid-market corporations (those with assets between $10 million and $50 million dollars) rose. Audits of mid-market corporations increased to 4,473 (an increase of 6% from 2006), while the audits of large corporations declined slightly in 2007 to 9,644 audits.
Taxpayer services. IRS also provided 2007 statistics on issues concerning taxpayer services, including information on the number of taxpayers filing electronically, accessing IRS’s internet site, and asking about their refunds through IRS’s internet-based system. As in the prior year, IRS accuracy was 91% on tax law questions answered through its toll-free telephone service.
