IRS Commissioner Warns of Complicated, Possibly Delayed, Tax Season

November 5, 2014

The 2015 tax filing season “will be one of the most complicated filing seasons we’ve ever had,” IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said Tuesday  in a keynote address to hundreds of attendees at the AICPA National Tax Conference.  He also predicted that only 53% of those calling the IRS will be able to get through to an agent for help.  This percentage is down from 72% a year ago (indicated as unacceptable) with an average wait time of 34 minutes.
