Tax Analysts Marking Fifth Anniversary of IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 – Media Invited to Roundtable Discussion as the Experts Contemplate: IRS: Moving Forward? Moving Backward?
Media is invited to Tax Analysts’ 90-minute roundtable discussion on the IRS with former IRS Commissioners and the National Taxpayer Advocate as we approach the fifth anniversary of the IRS Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998, which was designed to modernize the agency.

The group will discuss:

  • What has the law accomplished?
  • What’s gone right and what’s gone wrong?
  • What important issues confront the IRS today?
  • Where is the Service likely to be five years from now?
The group will review the five years since President Clinton signed the Restructuring Act, which was designed to both modernize the agency and to re-focus it on customer service, to assess pitfalls and progress, and to look ahead.

Moderator:
  • Christopher Bergin, executive director, Tax Analysts
Speakers:
  • Donald C. Alexander, former IRS commissioner
  • Sheldon S. Cohen, former IRS commissioner
  • Lawrence B. Gibbs, former IRS commissioner
  • Margaret M. Richardson, former IRS commissioner
  • Nina E. Olson, IRS National Taxpayer Advocate
  • B. John Williams, IRS Chief Counsel
