IRS market segment specialization program (MSSP) (continues...)
Example of IRS market segment specialization program (MSSP)
For example, the IRS has developed IRS audit strategies for targeting mobile food vendors such as people who sell hot dogs on street corners in US cities.
While the IRS believes that the food vendors are generally unsophisticated and maintain poor records which makes them an easy IRS tax audit target for the IRS because they probably cannot afford to hire legal tax attorneys and cannot support their tax returns with complete documentation.
