The key changes will eliminate interest and penalties on taxes you owe, if the IRS hasn't contacted you within 18 months.

Here are excerpts of an interview with Davis, conducted by CBS 'This Morning' Co-Anchor Mark McEwen. Q. How important is this bill, and does it go far enough? A. It's an important bill.

A Tribute To Shelley Davis, Farmworker Lawyer (1952-2008).

That is Davis's central complaint. The very culture of the agency she joined and stuck with for seven years made it nearly impossible to do the job she was paid to do - chronicle the evolution of one of American government's pivotal and most powerful bureaucratic entities. She's not alone in this criticism. In February, a number of parties, including the American Historical Association, launched a civil suit charging the IRS with destruction of valuable documents. These documents, by the way, are not your tax returns, or mine.

I read this before I started writing reviews on Amazon; this certainly would have deserved one. I'm writing from memory at least ten years later. What I retain is a sense of the flavor of the book more than the details. It describes a very self-protective, self-serving bureaucracy that is unresponsive to the taxpayer and rolls over for politicians.

At the time I read it I thought "there but for the grace of God go I." Most of my problems have been simple and resolved without conflict. Now, however, they simply refuse to accept that my foreign wife exists, even though they have spoken to her three times and have copies of every official document she possesses. They have gone against the Internal Revenue Manual at least three ways and seem oblivious and unrepentant. I went right to my bookshelf for this volume.

Before I read this book, I assumed that it was the story of a single individual's plight inside of the IRS. I thought it could be a questionable account, perhaps based on unsubstantiable facts. In fact, the book's subject matter is much broader than only Shelley Davis' experience. Ms. Davis, in true historical form, describes as reality an organization that should only exist in the minds of science-fiction writers. Even if only a fraction of her allegations are true, this work represents an irrecoverably scathing indictment on an admittedly powerful government agency. Although she never makes the connection, she paints a picture of official organized crime, a government body out of control, operating in the underworld of power and intimidation, where the law is openly despised. It is clear that the IRS requires immediate and extensive reform, in order that it might be made accountable to the people of the United States

I, along with others of you, are scared to death of the intrusive ways of the IRS. That was the reason I wanted to read this book, by someone on the inside.
From the start all Ms. Davis could do was tell us how many times a fellow employee said, "Oh, you're the historian." I was hoping to hear more on how this government department works and the dirt about how things are handled. I did not learn anything new that has not been written before.
I would not recommend this book to anyone looking for the dirt on the IRS

For anyone who wants to see a Govt. Bureacracy in meltdown, and that is still on going read this! With the recent retirement of Mr. Gross and the new IRS Commissioner Rossotti's idea to redo everyting, coupled with the attempts by Congress to "simplify" it on the one hand --by making it more difficult, to the other extreme of abolishing it altogether, you will soon see we are headed to another 1985. Considering this kind of book was never done before on the IRS, it stands by itself. All of our legislators should be required to read it and take a test on it!
