Protect Your Privacy
Policymakers in Washington have proposed the requirement of banks to report customer bank account information and activity to the IRS for any transaction of $10,000 or more, regardless of customer consent.
While community banks do not endorse such broad IRS access to their customers’ account information, consumers need to be aware of the potential effects of this proposal.
Mandating this type of bank account reporting to the IRS would infringe on the privacy of bank customers, push people away from a banking relationship and overload the IRS with more personal information about American citizens than it can possibly process or secure.
To be heard in Washington before this bank IRS reporting regime is enacted, you can send the following customizable message directly to your members of Congress and ensure your voice is heard.
