TREASURY INSPECTOR GENERAL FOR TAX ADMINISTRATION [“TIGTA”]
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) was established in January 1999 in accordance with the Internal Revenue Service Restructuring and Reform Act of 1998 (RRA 98) to provide independent oversight of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) activities. As mandated by RRA 98, TIGTA assumed most of the responsibilities of the IRS’ former Inspection Service.
TIGTA consists of mainly auditors and investigators focused on the duties and responsibilities of an Inspector General organization on matters relating to the IRS. TIGTA is organizationally placed within the Department of the Treasury but is independent of the Department and all other Treasury offices, including the Treasury Office of the Inspector General (OIG). TIGTA’s focus is devoted entirely to tax administration, while Treasury OIG is responsible for overseeing the other Treasury bureaus.
