IRS gets new, green building in Ogden

MARRIOTT-SLATERVILLE (Deseret News)  — Most Americans take Internal Revenue Service deadlines very seriously. So, apparently, does the agency.

The IRS demonstrated that on Thursday when it dedicated its new building that's right across 12th Street from its Ogden campus. The building was finished ahead of schedule. And the ribbon-cutting ceremony started on time, too — kicked off by an apropos rendition of "Baby, It's Cold Outside," by the IRS Choir.

The choir's been a fixture at the Ogden IRS since 1967. And it sounded great.

The 62,000-square-foot "Dossier Building" will house about 175 workers who deal with the paper returns and other documents filed by businesses. "Dossier" means file in French and the name was selected in an internal "name the building" contest. The edifice was built by The Boyer Co. for owner General Services Administration and is leased by the IRS.
