Implementation of Taxpayer Advocacy Panel Recommendations

In 2010, the TAP requested that we focus on “informing taxpayers of the policy and procedural changes the IRS is enacting to redact and/or eliminate the use of a taxpayer’s full Social Security number on both internal and external forms, thereby reducing the taxpayer’s risk of identity theft.” (See page 128)

In response to TAP recommendations we are displaying SSN elimination and reduction strategies on to inform taxpayers of progress and steps we are taking to further increase the security of their identity. We want to increase taxpayer confidence that the IRS is making changes to protect taxpayer privacy.
