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.
