So you know, the IRS would really appreciate it if all of you slackers would fill out your income tax forms correctly. It is making their job of auditing you very difficult. Seriously, what is wrong with all of you!? Jeez.
A report issued by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) indicates that the IRS receives millions of income and wage statements each year that contain mismatched names and identification numbers. According to TIGTA, "These mismatches consequently create opportunities for the income recipients to avoid the scrutiny of the IRS through underreporting income and not filing tax returns."
