Federal Information Sharing
The IRS Federal Intergovernmental Program (FIP), one of Governmental Liaison’s partnering components, strengthens existing relationships and develops new ones to support the development of initiatives with other federal agencies.
FIP increases collaboration and enhances effective tax administration by:
- Complementing efforts to identify and address non-compliance
- Leveraging outreach resources
- Assisting other federal agencies in achieving their goals
Under FIP, the Service has many initiatives with federal agencies that include information sharing and outreach programs, and data matching activities.
FIP positions IRS as a leader in interagency collaboration and sets an example for other federal agencies in support of the Presidential Memorandum of 1/21/09 on Transparency and Open Government.
