Privacy Impact Assessments - PIA

The IRS conducts Privacy Impact Assessments (PIAs) on information systems that collect personally identifiable information.

Performing PIAs ensures that:

  • the public is aware of the information we collect about them;
  • any impact these systems have on personal privacy is adequately addressed; and,
  • we collect only enough personal information to administer our programs, and no more.

In addition, PIAs confirm that we use the information for the purpose intended; that the information remains timely and accurate; and that it is protected while we have it and that we hold it only for as long as we need it.

As indicated by "XXXXX" some of these documents are edited, or redacted. We have withheld information that, if released might harm our systems, compromise law enforcement efforts or, jeopardize competitive business interests.

PIAs are available in either HTML or PDF format. If no link is provided, then the PIA is not yet available.
