Description

Correspondence issued by the Government Accountability Office with an abstract that begins "In November 2007, we issued our report on the results of our audit of the Internal Revenue Service's (IRS) financial statements as of, and for the fiscal years ending, September 30, 2007, and 2006, and on the effectiveness of its internal controls as of September 30, 2007. We also reported our conclusions on IRS's compliance with significant provisions of selected laws and regulations and on whether IRS's financial management systems substantially comply with the requirements of the Federal Financial Management Improvement Act of 1996 (FFMIA). The purpose of this report is to discuss issues identified during our audit of IRS's financial statements as of, and for the fiscal year ending, September 30, 2007, regarding internal controls that could be improved for which we currently do not have a specific recommendation outstanding. Although not all of these issues were discussed in our fiscal year 2007 audit report, they all warrant management's consideration. This report contains 24 recommendations that we are proposing IRS implement to improve its internal controls. We will issue a separate report on the implementation status of recommendations from our prior IRS financial audits and related financial management reports, including this one. We conducted our audit in accordance with U.S. generally accepted government auditing standards."
