IRS to Implement New E-Service for Tax Professionals
This article from today’s New York Times indicates that the IRS plans to implement an Electronic Account Resolution program for tax professionals by spring 2004.
From the IRS website: “Electronic Account Resolution allows tax professionals to expedite closure on clients’ account problems by electronically sending/receiving account related inquiries. Tax professionals may inquire about individual or business account problems, refunds, installment agreements, missing payments or notices. Tax professionals must have a power of attorney on file before accessing a clients’ account. The IRS response will be delivered to an electronic secure mailbox within 72 hours.”
