From the Highlights: "This audit is one in a series of audits being conducted by TIGTA [Office of the Inspector General for Tax Administration] as part of our oversight role of the IRS's [Internal Revenue Service] response to the coronavirus pandemic, including implementation of the applicable Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act provisions. Our overall objective was to evaluate controls implemented by the IRS to ensure that the $765.7 million in appropriated funds received for its coronavirus response is adequately tracked and used only for the intended purpose. TIGTA is issuing this interim audit report to provide information about the status of the IRS's coronavirus response funding as of September 30, 2020. TIGTA plans to issue a subsequent report in Fiscal Year 2022 that will supplement the information in this report."
