Jessica Lucas-Judy, acting director for tax issues, GAO

The Internal Revenue Service has to collect most of the revenue coming into the government. But it's got to do it legally and fairly. Congress has been keeping an eye on the IRS ever since the tax exempt scancal broke in 2013. In its latest study, the Government Accountability Office looked into how the IRS Wage and Investment division handles tax returns flagged for audit. It found some good things, and some matters that need tightening up. Jessica Lucas-Judy, acting director for tax issues at GAO, joins Federal Drive with Tom Temin with some insight.
