👍🏻Senate Bill S. 240 AKA the “Taxpayer Identity Protection Act of 2019”
I’m in strong agreement with and recommend the passage of Senate Bill S.240 AKA the Taxpayer Identity Protection Act of 2019 — would require the Treasury Dept. to expand its Identity Program PIN (IP PIN) pilot program, which provides PIN numbers that may be used in conjunction with a Social Security Number (SSN) or other identifying information to assist in verifying an individual’s identity upon request.
The use of the PIN system is an option WHICH a taxpayer Could use but would not be a mandatory requirement to use. Purely voluntary.
Identity theft tax refund fraud — in which fraudsters file false tax returns to steal people’s tax refunds — is a multi-billion dollar crime that costs taxpayers and the federal government time, money, and resources. Giving all taxpayers the option of getting PINs to add a layer of security to their tax returns will help combat this crime.
