In this report, we describe the perceived problems that led to the enactment of Chapter 1728, and attempt to assess the underlying causes of those problems.

Finally, we analyze the feasibility and costeffectiveness of collecting information concerning specific taxpayer transactions, and the best means of protecting the confidentiality of such information.
