2011 Taxpayer Compliance Burden Survey


Taxpayer Compliance Burden Survey, Calendar Year 2011

OMB #1545-2212

The Taxpayer Compliance Burden Survey is an important project that can benefit you and millions of other taxpayers.

We hear from taxpayers that amending returns and resolving issues with the IRS is time-consuming and expensive. This survey will allow the IRS to learn more about those costs.

Your responses to the survey will help the IRS better understand the time and money spent by taxpayers resolving these issues. The information you provide will help the IRS learn how to improve its processes and reduce taxpayer burden. You can be certain that all information you provide will be used for research purposes only.

Only those taxpayers randomly selected may participate in the study. Data is being collected through the end of the year, so you may still be selected even if you have not yet received an invitation. Participation for those selected is voluntary.

We hope you will decide to participate in this study. We estimate that it will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete.

A copy of the survey, which is being conducted by Westat on behalf of the IRS, is provided in the link provided below. Together we have an opportunity to advance our understanding of taxpayer burden. Thank you.
