An analysis of available data on pension consultants and plans revealed a statistical association between inadequate disclosure and lower investment returns for ongoing plans, suggesting the possible adverse financial effect of such nondisclosure. The econometric analysis detected lower annual rates of return for those ongoing plans associated with consultants that had failed to disclose significant conflicts of interest. These lower rates ranged from a statistically significant 1.2-1.3 % points over the 2000-04 period. The avg. returns for ongoing plans that used consultants who failed to dis

Executive orders requiring agencies to impose certain conditions on federal contractors as terms of their contracts have raised questions about presidential authority to issue such orders. Recently, the Obama Admin. circulated, but did not issue, a draft executive order directing "every contracting department and agency" to require contractors to "disclose certain political contributions and expenditures." The draft order cites the President's constitutional authority, as well as his authority pursuant to the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act of 1949 (FPASA), which authorizes th

Civil tax penalties are an important tool for encouraging compliance with tax laws. It is important that the IRS administers penalties properly and determines the effectiveness of penalties in encouraging compliance. In response to a congressional request, the auditor determined: (1) whether IRS is evaluating penalties in a manner that supports sound penalty administration and voluntary compliance and, if not, how IRS may be able to do so; and (2) whether IRS's guidance for a new penalty for failure to disclose reportable transactions was issued in a timely manner and was useful to affected pa

Taxpayers who do not want to wait for their tax refunds from the IRS may choose to obtain refund anticipation loans (RAL). RALs are short-term, high-interest bank loans that are advertised and brokered by both national chain and local tax preparation companies. Although the annual percentage rate on RALs can be over 500%, they allow taxpayers to receive cash refunds quickly. Despite the benefits of receiving cash quickly based on an expected refund, IRS officials and others have raised concerns about whether taxpayers are fully aware of the costs involved and their tax filing alternatives.
