The IRS has relaxed the timelines for information document request (IDR) procedures. In a memo, the Tax Exempt and Government Entities (TEGE) Division extended the timelines, through July 15, for taxpayers unable to respond timely to the requests because of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The deviation relaxes certain timelines detailed within the IRS’s internal review manual that would otherwise result in enforcement actions due to untimely or incomplete IDR responses. IRS managers may continue with IDR enforcement, when in their judgment, the interests of tax administration warrant it. This could include cases with “short statutes, listed transactions and fraud development.”  Please contact us for more information.   #IDR  #COVID19
