Tax Policy Podcast with Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson

The Tax Foundation Blog recently conducted an interview with interview with Ms. Nina Olson, the nation's Taxpayer Advocate at the IRS. The podcast interview can be downloaded at the Tax Policy Podcast page.

In the interview Ms Olson discusses the role of the Taxpayer Advocate in protecting taxpayer rights, the independence of the office, and the annual report she submits to Congress identifying problems facing taxpayers. She also talks about the problems that both the IRS and taxpayers face when they make last minute changes to the tax code. The interview is slightly over 20 minutes, but presents tons of great information for any one interested in tax policy.
