Professor Ventry Comments on IRS for Los Angeles Times

Professor Dennis Ventry commented on the Internal Revenue service for an article in the Los Angeles Times examining the agency's performance in the wake of congressional hearings over the alleged targeting of conservative groups for audits and special scrutiny.

"I think they do an extraordinary job, considering that they're historically underfunded and under-resourced," said Ventry. He also observed that the agency processes 144 million personal income tax returns, two million corporate tax returns, and three million estate and trust returns with "miraculous" speed.

Professor Ventry is an expert in tax policy and legal ethics. His research interests include tax expenditure analysis, family taxation, professional responsibility and standards of care, tax filing and administration, tax compliance, public finance, and tax and legal history. In addition, he was recently added as a co-author on the casebook, Legal Ethics and Corporate Practice.
