Making Strides In Detecting Fraudulent Tax Returns

The audit resulted in the following six recommendations, which the IRS agreed with:

1.Expand the use of identity theft models to include all accelerated W-2s to compare with tax returns for possible identity theft.
2.Develop criteria to identify and evaluate potential fraud in tax returns.
3.Develop a way to use state lead data to help evaluate tax returns for identity theft.
4.Use tax return data to find the refund amount associated with electronically filed tax returns that were rejected when computing revenues, leave out rejected returns that don’t claim a refund, and account for tax returns with multiple reasons for rejection.
5.Review revenues to ensure that duplicate tax returns are omitted.
6.Tax returns with mismatched income because of amended or duplicate income documents should not be considered for potential identity theft.
