IRS pursuing high income taxpayers who haven't filed tax returns

High income taxpayers are those who received income in excess of $100,000 during a tax year. In February of 2020, IRS announced that it was stepping up efforts to visit high-income taxpayers who have failed to file one or several years of their tax returns.

Paul Mano, Director of Collection Operations, Small Business/Self Employed Division, said,"These visits focusing on high income taxpayers will be taking place across the country. We want to ensure taxpayers know their options to get right with their taxes and avoid bigger issues later."

IRS has hired additional enforcement personnel and is aggressively pursuing those who have failed to satisfy their filing and payment obligations.IRS compliance personnel are also now working more closely with IRS criminal investigators on priority compliance issues, including high-income cases.
