IRS, US Tax Industry Renew Campaign To Protect Personal Data

by Scott Hamilton, Tax-News.com, Washington

17 November 2016


The US Internal Revenue Service (IRS), state tax administrators, and tax product firms have begun the second year of their campaign to encourage more taxpayers to protect their personal and financial data.

The "Taxes. Security. Together." campaign was originally announced on November 19, 2015. It was developed by the Security Summit – a collaborative initiative between the IRS, leaders of tax preparation and software firms, payroll and tax financial product processors, and state tax administrators.

The IRS hopes to increase visibility of a series of security awareness tax tips; a number of suggestions summarized on its "Taxes. Security. Together." web page; and its one-page Publication 4524, Security Awareness for Taxpayers.

"These are common sense tips to help taxpayers ensure the security of their information," said IRS Commissioner John Koskinen. "The Security Summit partnership between the IRS, states, and industry has made great strides but we need taxpayers to ensure their information is secure as well."

The initiative is designed to raise public awareness that even routine actions on the internet and on their personal devices can affect the safety of their financial and tax data.
