The IRS uses third-party services to communicate and interact with the public. These services are controlled and operated by third parties and are not government websites or applications. By interacting with the IRS through these third-party services, you may be giving non-government third parties access to your personal information. Any information collected by a third-party service is subject to the privacy policies of the third-party service provider. These third-party services may, for example, use persistent (multi-session) cookies.

The IRS does not collect, disseminate or maintain any Personally Identifiable Information (PII), for example, registration information, that you make available through these third-party services. The IRS strongly discourages you from providing sensitive PII, such as your Social Security number or tax account information, and we will delete any comments containing such information without responding.

Please note that these third-party services supplement the IRS’s traditional communication and outreach efforts. If you need to communicate with the IRS, please use these traditional channels to contact us.
