Leading Tax Attorney Establishes Taxpayers' Forum to Monitor the IRS.

Former IRS Chief Counsel Alvin S. Brown Launches "The IRS Forum"

FAIRFAX, Va. -- Alvin S. Brown, one of the nation's leading tax attorneys who formerly served for the IRS Chief Counsel for 25+ years, established the IRS Forum ( for taxpayers to log and monitor the IRS on the web - the first of its kind.

The Forum has been approved by the IRS as a 501(c) (3) educational organization to provide taxpayers with a place on the internet to record and discuss their IRS experiences. Without disclosing their identity, taxpayers will identify every form of IRS abuse, misconduct, error of law and systemic problem relating to the administration of the tax law by the IRS.

According to Brown, the goal of the IRS Forum is to eliminate IRS abuses and misconduct as they become visible to the public, the media, Congress and upper management of the IRS. Taxpayer interaction with the IRS is subject to privacy restrictions, but taxpayers can voluntarily disclose their IRS experiences within the IRS Forum platform. "IRS mistreatment of taxpayers, previously kept secret, will be eliminated when these practices are exposed by taxpayers on the IRS Forum web page," said Brown.

Membership to the IRS Forum is free and donations to the Forum are tax deductible. For more information on the IRS Forum, please visit To interview its founder, Alvin S. Brown, please contact Beth Heller at 212.584.4288.
