RE: Updated IRS Publication 1075 Now Available

Dear Colleague:

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) recently updated and released its Publication 1075, Tax Information Security Guidelines for Federal, State and Local Agencies, effective September 30, 2016. This IRS Publication 1075 supersedes the previous publication dated October 2014. The updated Publication 1075 provides a summary of the revisions IRS made from the previous version including the recently discussed Background Investigation Requirements.

You can download the updated Publication 1075 from the IRS Safeguards Program webpage Visit disclaimer page .

As you are aware, Disclosure Policy on Use of Federal Tax Information (FTI) for Child Support Enforcement Visit disclaimer page is also available online. This policy matrix details current IRS guidance and limitations and conditions associated with several disclosure areas that may not be specifically detailed in Publication 1075.

Because FTI is subject to the disclosure authority and limitations under 26 U.S.C. 6103 and as described in Publication 1075, IRS Office of Safeguards is responsible for all interpretations of safeguarding requirements. Publication 1075 requirements may be supplemented or modified between editions of Publication 1075 via guidance provided to us by the IRS Office of Safeguards. We continue to work with IRS, both legislatively and procedurally, to address interpretive differences between our agencies.

IRS Office of Safeguards will host a call in the near future to discuss its Publication 1075 updates and answer your questions. Once a time is confirmed, we will notify you.

Please e-mail scollections@acf.hhs.gov if you have questions.
