TE/GE Fiscal Year 2018 Accomplishments Letter

The Tax-Exempt and Government Entities (TE/GE) Division of the Internal Revenue Service released its accomplishments for Fiscal Year 2018 (see here).  Here are a few highlights:

  • Exempt Organizations (EO) implemented several changes to better serve EO customers and assist employees with processing applications more efficiently for tax-exempt status.
  • Employee Plans (EP) implemented several program and processing changes to better serve its customers and assist TE/GE’s employees with their cases.
  • Indian Tribal Governments (ITG) assists Indian tribes with addressing their federal tax matters, while Tax Exempt Bonds (TEB) administers federal tax laws applicable to tax-advantaged bonds. ITG/TEB implemented several program and procedural improvements.
  • TE/GE employed its Compliance Units to address potential noncompliance, primarily using correspondence contacts known as “compliance checks,” which limited the burden of each taxpayer contacted and allowed TE/GE to establish a presence in the taxpayer community in a manner that reduced the cost to the IRS.
  • TE/GE made a significant hiring push in FY18, partnering with the Human Capital Office to select a total of 111 employees, including new hires, promotions, and laterals.

The letter also describes the Fiscal Year 2018 Compliance Program, which was divided into six portfolio programs:

  • Compliance Strategies
  • Data-Driven Approaches
  • Referrals, Claims & Other Casework
  • Compliance Contacts
  • Determinations
  • Voluntary Compliance & Other Technical Programs
