In a related release, the IRS Commissioner said that FY 2014 is the “fourth consecutive year IRS appropriations were reduced” and that the reductions resulted in decreases of the number of audits completed. During FY 2014, the IRS examined less than 1% of all tax returns filed.

The FY 2014 Data Book describes IRS activities from October 1, 2013, to September 30, 2014, and includes information about returns filed, taxes collected, enforcement, taxpayer assistance, and the IRS budget and workforce.
