The Office of Governmental Liaison develops and implements cooperative partnerships between the IRS and state tax agencies, as well as other federal and local government agencies. Partnering with state and local taxing agencies saves government resources by reducing duplication of effort. Together, we help achieve mutually beneficial goals of improving voluntary compliance, increasing the efficiency of tax administration, and reducing taxpayer burden.

The IRS information sharing program saves government resources by partnering with agencies at all levels of government to enhance voluntary compliance with tax laws.

The Safeguards Program and staff are responsible for ensuring that federal, state and local agencies receiving federal tax information protect it as if the information remained in IRS’s hands.
