CUNA seeks CU input for GAO on IRS, tax refunds
WASHINGTON (2/19/14)--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.

Responses also will be used to enhance CUNA advocacy efforts on tax-related topics.

For the CUNA survey, use the resource link.
