Recommendation Details
Text of Recommendation
The Commissioner, Small Business/Self-Employed (SB/SE) Division, should consider updating programming to use existing third-party data to detect potentially overstated deductions. For example, if the instructions for Form 5498 are revised pursuant to Recommendation 5, the IRS could better compare the deduction amounts reported on the tax returns with the amounts reported on Forms 5498.
