The IRS Large Business and International (LB&I) Division has
identified and selected six additional compliance campaigns. The IRS
previously announced 13 campaigns on January 31, 2017, followed by an
additional 11 on November 3, 2017, and five more on March 13, 2018.
These campaigns help LB&I move in the direction of issue-based
examinations. In addition, a compliance campaign process helps the
organization decide which compliance issues present risks and the best
way to respond to such risks.
The additional campaigns were identified through LB&I data analysis, and suggestions from IRS employees. LB&I’s goal is to improve return selection, identify issues representing a risk of noncompliance, and make the greatest use of limited resources.
The six campaigns selected for the rollout are:
The campaigns themselves fall within the Withholding & International Individual Compliance practice area.
