Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Committee on Finance, made the following commenton the IRS audit rates for Fiscal Year 2003 released today.
“We need to focus beyond just the numbers and make sure that the IRS is auditing smarter.Unfortunately, today’s numbers don’t show the trend of the increasing number of audits that findnothing wrong.
