We received the following from Joe McCarthy, the IRS Senior Stakeholder Liaison and wanted to share it. If you encountered any systemic issues during the filing season please let me know. In addition, the IRS is always looking for ways to improve and one of the best ways of doing this is by having you provide the IRS with suggestions for improvement. So if you have any suggestions, please send them my way. Send an e-mail email@example.com or call me at (office) 860.756.4431 or (cell) 203.415.1015.
