“We will be sending out examinations and we will be sending out [information document requests] to specifically inquire about compliance with this requirement,” said Steve Chamberlin, senior manager of compliance and management in the IRS’ office of tax-exempt bonds. But he said the IRS has not yet determined how the BABs will be selected for audits.
