IRS says policy changes needed for it to do a better job in stopping identity theft
There is a story by Matthew Weigert (Dec., 3, 2012) on FCW, “The Business of Federal Technology”, about the difficulties the IRS says it has in detecting identity theft in returns because of regulations in the way it contacts other agencies, particularly regarding health care (those would be HIPAA regulations).
The link for the story is here.
The IRS does have its own YouTube video on how identity theft in tax returns can be stopped.
