The Treasury Department's director of practice, Robert Brauer, reported to the AICPA's Responsibilities in Tax Practice Committee that his office had increased its rate of processing cases. As a result, over the preceding 15 month period his office had issued 170 suspensions, 25 disbarments and a number of reprimands. (Reprimands are not made public, so the director could not share the specific number.)

The director indicated that while the discipline was applied to all professions authorized to practice before the IRS, the majority of suspensions were of CPAs. This was the case, he believed, because they constitute so large a group of tax practitioners.

Suspensions were for criminal convictions or failure to file their own returns, file employee tax returns, or pay employment taxes. *
