They're expected to feature agents who say the agency unfairly singles out small taxpayers who can't fight back.
Another I-R-S practice that has caught the Senate committee's eye is whipsawing.
That's when tax collectors go after not just the taxpayer, but his family too, perhaps pressuring parents or a brother or sister.
