Dear Colleagues;

This correspondence is a reminder that the IRS requires state child support enforcement agencies to submit their annual Safeguard Activity Report (SAR) to the IRS by March 31, 2011.

Agencies should submit their SAR on the template developed by the IRS Office of Safeguards. In addition, agencies must submit the SAR electronically using the IRS approved encryption method of WinZip. This will ensure more timely and efficient reporting within a safe and secure environment.

To receive the SAR template and transmission instructions, please:

  • Send an email with the subject line Need SAR Template to safeguardreports@irs.gov
  • IRS will email the template back to the requestor
  • IRS will also send each requester instructions for using WinZip

If you have any questions or require additional information, please contact Danny Markley at (202) 260-1888 or danny.markley@acf.hhs.gov or Scott Hale at (202) 401-5745 or scott.hale@acf.hhs.gov.

Sincerely,

Vicki Turetsky
Commissioner
Office of Child Support Enforcement
