Protecting Your Tax Information

The IRS privacy policy explains how they handle the personally identifiable information (PII) that you provide when you visit online to browse, obtain information, or conduct a transaction. PII includes information that is personal in nature and which might be used to identify you. The IRS uses their website to provide information about IRS services and programs. Their website includes specific applications which provide more services or enable them to respond to specific questions from website visitors.

The IRS will not collect personal information about you just because you visit their Internet site. Some applications on this website provide you with the opportunity to order forms, ask questions requiring a response, sign up for electronic newsletters, participate in focus groups and customer surveys, or learn the status of filed returns or anticipated payments. Using their services is voluntary and may require that you provide additional personal information to them. Providing the requested information implies your consent for them to use this data in order to respond to your specific request.
