Settlements at audit stage increase.

In 1990, only 29% of tax cases at the audit level were wholly or partly settled. In 1991, the settlement rate rose to 42% and in 1992 (through the spring), 52%. The dollar amount the IRS received on settled cases also increased from 5% of the disputed amount in 1990 to 28% in 1992 (through the spring).

The IRS attributes improvements to its interdepartmental cooperation campaigns--examination personnel, for example, now try to cooperate and communicate with attorneys in national, district and regional offices.
