IRS Will Close Small Offices


Written by Staff Planner, Virginia Dhondt

The Internal Revenue Service will close forty three offices over the next two years in accordance with a 2010 White House directive to eliminate excess federal properties, according to the IRS and a recent CCH report. The IRS has over 650 offices nationwide and indicates that the offices scheduled for closure are offices that do not provide taxpayer assistance and have fewer than 25 employees. Furthermore, offices may be consolidated with other offices in the same commuting area. Additionally, the agency, which employs more than 100,000, indicates plans to consider desk-sharing and increased telework.  The IRS expects significant savings through decreased rental costs through this reduction in overall office space. Any new building space must be offset through consolidation, co-location, or disposal of space.
