John Reece, the chief information officer at the Internal Revenue Service, said priorities have changed in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and the tax agency is seeking more money for security. Like other agencies, Reece said the IRS has asked the Office of Management and Budget for increased funds immediately to help secure systems at the tax agency.
