The IRS has implemented a new pilot program designed to aid law enforcement in obtaining tax return data to help investigate and prosecute specific cases of identity theft. This program is currently limited to coordinated efforts within the state of Florida.
How it works: State and local law enforcement officials with evidence of identity theft involving fraudulently filed federal tax returns will have the victims complete a special IRS disclosure form. Taxpayers must give their permission for the IRS to provide the necessary information. Then the police will contact the identity theft victims to request and secure consent for disclosing the records. In some cases, the IRS will assist with this process.
The IRS will evaluate the results of the pilot program before it proceeds further.
