In processing more than 235 million individual and business tax returns, the IRS spent an average of 40 cents to collect each $100 of taxes, the lowest cost per $100 in seven years.
The IRS Takes and Gives Back: While it often seems like they are all about "take," the IRS paid out tax refunds totaling $248.6 billion to more than 114 million individual tax return filers, and answered more than 33.2 million toll-free calls from taxpayers during 2007.
