The IRS will be hiring roughly 700 new staff members to assist with enforcement.  This should theoretically help resolve tax issues faster as you or your hired CPA, EA, or attorney could spend less time on hold and less time chasing down an agent to process the installment agreement or OIC.  The IRS has had its budget slashed over an over again over the last 7 years and them meant less people to help those tax payers that were trying to resolve their tax debt instead of sticking their head in the sand.  Hopefully these new employees will speed things along.
