White Papers

Frank Wolpe's White Paper: A WHITE PAPER ON EXECUTIVE ACTION TO RESTORE TRUST IN THE INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE BY REBUILDING FIELD OPERATIONS (2014).

This White Paper examines fallout from Internal Revenue Service missteps and offers a proven proposal for organizational restructuring and reform by executive action.

For change-makers to make a difference, they will have to think differently. Rebuilding field operations is a place to start.
