Olson has accused the agency of relying too heavily on an automated "one-size-fits-all approach." She said the agency misguidedly files liens against people who have no money and no assets.
"Absent data that show liens make a meaningful contribution to revenue collection and especially in this economy, I find it unacceptable that the IRS continues to torment financially struggling taxpayers in this way," Olson wrote in a news release accompanying the report.
Perhaps Olson has a point but then Robert Snell over at Tax Watchdog might not have a job and we'd hate to see that happen. The guy is like Raisin Bran™ on the celebrity tax deadbeat.
