CUNA seeks CU input for GAO on IRS, tax refunds
Credit unions that provide tax refunds and/or work with the U.S. Internal Revenue Service on issues like identity theft can provide much-needed information through a new Credit Union National Association survey. The U.S. Government Accountability Office–the investigative arm of the U.S. Congress–has specifically asked CUNA for details on the tax topics.
The CUNA survey asks:
- Does your credit union currently provide tax refund loans?
- Does your credit union work with the IRS on suspected identity theft fraud issues, including with their External Leads program to return questionable tax refunds?
- Do you have any recommendations on how the IRS could further combat identity fraud with financial institutions?
There is a fairly short turn-around time for the CUNA request. Survey results will be accepted until Feb. 24.continue reading »
