IRS Disclosure Awareness Videos
IRS Disclosure Awareness training videos are available for local, state and federal governmental agencies that receive federal tax information (FTI). The IRS Office of Safeguards created three videos to help explain several key concepts in protecting the confidentiality of FTI. IRS Disclosure Enforcement Specialists discuss topics such as secure storage, the importance of Publication 1075, computer security, reporting requirements, and the penalties for unauthorized disclosure of FTI.
The videos are available in both DVD and VHS formats and address agency-specific issues. One video is for state, local tax agencies and federal agencies, another is for state and federal child enforcement agency issues and the third is for state human resources agencies. The videos will help agencies with their annual requirement to certify that their employees understand the security policies and procedures.
These videos can be ordered at the IRS Distribution Center by calling 1-800-TAX-FORM (829-3676). Since these videos are not copyrighted, agencies are asked to order a small amount and make copies as needed for their employees.
Specific information about each of the disclosure videos is as follows.
