Jan Miesels Allen of RPAC shared the following in a Forensic Genealogy discussion on LinkedIn
House Ways and Means Oversight Subcommittee Chairman Charles Boustany, Jr., MD (R-LA) and Social Security Subcommittee Chairman Sam Johnson (R-TX) announced that the Subcommittees on Oversight and Social Security will hold a hearing on tax fraud involving identity theft. The hearing will take place on Tuesday, May 8, 2012, in 1100 Longworth House Office Building, beginning at 10:00 A.M EDT. Oral testimony at this hearing will be from invited witnesses only. However, any individual or organization not scheduled for an oral appearance may submit a written statement for consideration by the Committee and for inclusion in the printed record of the hearing. We have been advised that the only invited presenters will be from government agencies. See: http://tinyurl.com/7qnot8h.
The use of the Death Master File (DMF) also known as the Social Security Death Index (SSDI) has been purchased by other government agencies, financial institutions, life insurance companies, credit reporting organizations, data aggregators, medical researchers, genealogists and others; and purchasers are free to re-disclose the data they obtain. This hearing will explore a major source of the problem - identity thieves who steal Social Security numbers to engage in tax fraud.
Anyone may watch the hearing by going to the committee website listed above and following the instructions for watching the video at the time of the hearing or clicking on committee videos on the lower left side.
These are the invited testifiers:
The Honorable J. Russell George
The Honorable Patrick P. O’Carroll, Jr.
Steven T. Miller
Nina E. Olson
No action will be taken at hearing... just fact finding--due to massive tax problem--major concerns--don't know when they will take action on legislation-either what has been proposed or other legislation yet to be introduced.
