Get private tax-debt collectors off the streets and out of taxpayers' hair.
Repeal the alternative minimum tax provisions.
Eliminate or at least simplify income phase-out rules that apply to numerous tax breaks.
Improve services and tax laws that affect military personnel.
Do the same for spouses facing tax problems because of a partner's or ex's actions.
Those are just a few of the recommendations Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson has for the IRS and lawmakers in her annual report to Congress.
I'm tied up this morning on other projects, but later today I'll look at and comment on these and other items in Olson's report. I did, though, want to give you a heads-up that the document was out there,
just in case you wanted to peruse it over your lunch break.
