Mitchell Comments on Lax IRS Charity Oversight

21 March 2019 Bloomberg Tax News
Partner Cleta Mitchell was quoted in a Bloomberg Tax article, “College Admissions Scandal Highlights Lax IRS Charity Oversight,” about why the so-called charity that paid millions in college admissions bribes wasn’t discovered in an IRS audit.

Mitchell said the IRS could improve compliance with the tax code by conducting more random audits. Conducting truly random audits, and subjecting all charitable organizations to the same potential pain and expense of an audit, would encourage greater compliance among taxpayers, she said.
