IRS requires firms to report iffy tax breaks

• AP

The Internal Revenue Service plans to start requiring large corporations to disclose on their tax returns whether they are taking tax breaks that might be unacceptable to the IRS.

Large corporate tax filings are often complex, with some firms taking tax breaks that fall into a gray area of tax law. IRS Commissioner Douglas Shulman said Tuesday that requiring firms to flag those "uncertain tax positions" for IRS examiners would improve enforcement.

So the IRS expects the firm to tell the IRS what the IRS is thinking.  Ok, I'm down with that.  Makes perfect sense considering the mentality making the rules.
