A bill to amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide taxpayer notification of suspected identity theft.
Amends the Internal Revenue Code to require the Secretary of the Treasury to notify a taxpayer of: (1) any unauthorized use of such taxpayer's identity (suspected identity theft) the Secretary uncovers during an investigation of false or fraudulent statements or tax returns; and (2) any person criminally charged under such investigation. Requires such notification to be given to the taxpayer as soon as practicable and without jeopardizing a tax fraud investigation.
