Upcoming Feature: The Taxman’s Tech Troubles

VIENNA, VA., March 22, 2016)— With tax season looming, FCW's lead feature in the March 30th issue is "The Taxman's Tech Troubles," which outlines the technology woes the IRS is facing both in the view of the general public and behind closed doors.

FCW and "The Taxman's Tech Troubles" article author Zach Noble are available for further inquiries or interviews. Contact [email protected] or (703)576-7081 for more information.

A preview of "The Taxman's Tech Troubles":

The IRS spends $2.5 billion annually on information technology across more than 20 major systems, yet it still relies on a central data processing setup that went online in the 1960s to keep its revenue-collecting cogs turning. The IRS' IT problems are manifold: not enough money, political pressure, technical constraints, a lack of skilled tech professionals and the tax code itself.
