proposed new disclosure requirements will fall heavily on a universe of taxpayers already challenged to timely meet the far-reaching demands of both the financial statement and tax return processes. To that end, we respectfully encourage the IRS to, at the very least, recast its proposal to affect fewer taxpayers while fundamentally re-thinking the most burdensome and onerous aspects of the current proposal.
