Audit Finds That IRS Small Business Division Not So Different From That Attractive Person at the Bar Who Seemed Really Interested in You

They say they'll call and meanwhile you sit by the phone like an IDIOT.

TIGTA […] found that examiners are trained and monitored to ensure they provide accurate information to taxpayers, but they do not consistently return calls when requested by or promised to taxpayers. TIGTA identified 20 calls during which the taxpayer either requested a return call or was promised one from a statistical sample of calls the [Small Business/Self-Employed Division received from October 31 through December 9, 2011. For 14 of the 20 calls, there was no evidence that the call was returned.
