Nothing. All IRS work is handled in-house. The only thing that was ever outsourced was some collections a few years ago. That program turned out to be an abject failure as collections agencies don't have 1/10th of the power that the IRS does to convince debtors to pay up.

The IRS considered outsourcing the toll free lines and some of the debt collection activities to companies outside the government (but never India). The trials didn't work and the projects were shut down.

I don't believe they did. Perhaps you are confusing this with the outsourcing of tax preparation to India. See attached link discussing that.

They are not.
Some of the larger accounting firms have but the IRS has not to the best of my knowledge.
