The IRS stated, this month, that they will be targeting people within income above $100,000 as a last ditch attempt to encourage compliance, this is the final step before the agency pursues more drastic measures, which include civil or criminal action. The IRS isn't going to stop in April 15, and has plans on identify other non-compliant individuals throughout the year and will be adding cases as they find them.
For the first time in years, Congress has allocated additional funds to the IRS for tax enforcement. The IRS is hiring thousands of new revenue officers (collection agents) and the word on the street is that Enforcement Is Back!
