Federal tax lawsuits plunge
By Michael Cohn

The latest available data from the federal courts indicates that during the first quarter of fiscal year 2020 (Oct. 2019 - Dec. 2019), the government reported 158 new civil filings of federal tax lawsuits. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University in New York, that number was down 19 percent over the same period from fiscal year 2019 when the number of civil filings of this type totaled 194. If the filings continue at the same pace for the rest of this fiscal year, according to TRAC, the total civil tax filings will be 632, down from 736 during the past fiscal year. Ten years ago, in fiscal year 2010, there was a total of 1,205 such suits.
