IRS to Reach Out, Get Organized
The IRS has announced the new Agency-Wide Shared Services group, which is providing support for IRS workers nationwide. Services covered by this new group will include administration in the areas of procurement, facilities, real estate, personnel, and Equal Opportunity and diversity issues.
By taking some administrative duties out of the hands of IRS offices around the country, the remote workers will be able to provide more concentrated services to taxpayers.
The AWSS is part of the IRS reorganization, which is intended to bring more specialized services to taxpayers. The IRS is, after all, an agency paid for by taxpayers and is designed to provide services that we all feel are necessary.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
