WTHR investigation, congressional pressure trigger IRS policy change http://www.wthr.com/story/31812641/wthr-investigation-congressional-pressure-trigger-irs-policy-change
Don’t hold you breath on how long this will last IF it is actually implemented next January:
WTHR has learned the IRS will begin to notify victims of employment-related identity theft instead of keeping it a secret. The IRS has not publicly announced the change, but it will take effect in January, according to an internal document obtained by 13 Investigates.
It is not clear whether the IRS notification program will be permanent or a temporary measure, similar to a recent pilot program to notify some victims of employment-related identity theft. The IRS abandoned that pilot program in 2015 without explanation.
9th Circuit no less. Identity theft matters.
