    Re: " the IRS Oversight Board appears to lack the authority to carry out its duties even though it is given broad oversight responsibility over the IRS. "

    Please Andy, point out where the Oversight Board was unable to do their job
    solely because the administration didn't adopt their recommendations. Their
    job is to oversee the IRS in its administration, management, conduct,
    direction, and supervision of the execution and application of the internal
    revenue laws.

    How does it square with "If the budget recommendations of the Oversight
    Board are ignored by the Administration without consequence then the Board's
    review and approval of the IRS budget meaningless."

    "The Board also cannot be involved in specific procurement activities or
    most personnel matters. The Board does not develop or
    formulate tax policy on existing or proposed tax laws."

    "It reviews and approves IRS strategic plans and its budget requests".

    WOW!!! They have to request a budget. Amazing. Sometimes the answer is
    "no".

    I see nothing wrong with any of this.

      Oversight Board ignored

      NSA Calls For Enhanced Budget Authority For IRS Oversight Board
      Alexandria, VA -- June 13, 2005

      The National Society of Accountants today expressed concern that the IRS
      Oversight Board appears to lack the authority to carry out its duties even
      though it is given broad oversight responsibility over the IRS. ......Ms.
      LeValley stated that, "If the budget recommendations of the Oversight Board
      are ignored by the Administration without consequence then the Board's
      review and approval of the IRS budget meaningless." ..... NSA's letter
      recommended that an independent organization be appointed to review the
      budget process to determine where deviations from IRC section 7802(d)
      occurred so that corrective steps, including legislative changes, may be
      developed.

        Nothing I see indicates that the administration has to adopt any
        recommendations the oversight board makes. Besides, my last civics class
        mentioned something about Congress in the budget process, as well as the
        function of Congress in passing laws. But, maybe I was dreaming about those
        facts. Maybe the oversight board carries more weight then the
        administration, Congress and the judiciary combined.

        Please note that the Board cannot be involved in specific IRS law
        enforcement activities, including audits, collection activities, or criminal
        investigations. The Board also cannot be involved in specific procurement
        activities or most personnel matters. The Board does not develop or
        formulate tax policy on existing or proposed tax laws. However, the Board
        has an ongoing interest in IRS operations and administration and would be
        interested in the insights and observations of those working with the IRS.
        These insights can be helpful in understanding the IRS's progress in
        communicating and implementing its long-term plans.

        What is the IRS Oversight Board?
        The nine-member IRS Oversight Board was created by Congress under the IRS
        Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998. The Board's responsibility is to
        oversee the IRS in its administration, management, conduct, direction, and
        supervision of the execution and application of the internal revenue laws.
        Why was the Board created?

        The Board was created to provide long-term focus and specific expertise in
        guiding the IRS so it may best serve the public and meet the needs of
        taxpayers. The National Commission on Restructuring the IRS recommended the
        creation of the Board to provide "experience, independence, and stability"
        to the IRS so that it may move forward in a cogent, focused direction.

        What does the IRS Oversight Board do?

        The Board operates much like a corporate board of directors, but is tailored
        to fit a public sector organization. The Board provides the IRS with
        long-term guidance and direction, and applies its private-sector experience
        and expertise in evaluating the IRS' progress in improving its service. It
        reviews and approves IRS strategic plans and its budget requests, and
        evaluates IRS efforts to monitor its own performance. The Board reviews the
        hiring and compensation of senior IRS officials. It also recommends
        candidates to the President to serve as IRS Commissioner, and can recommend
        a commissioner's removal.



        Don't let the facts (or the truth) slow you down Andy.

            why is hard-earned taxpayers' money being spent on something that's only for

                  One function of the Oversight Board is to "review" and "approve" the "budget
                  request". I believe they did their job and reviewed, and approved the
                  request. Seems that what they asked for wasn't fully approved by the
                  higher-ups. That in no way invalidates the Oversight Board's work.
