Lawmakers Introduce Legislation on Missing Children and IRS


The contentious issue of legislation barring tax information from being released that could lead to missing children may be changed soon.

According to the Justice Department’s statistics, about 200,000 children are abducted each year, mostly by family members. In 2007, the Treasury department found that out of 1,700 family abductions, more than one third of the abductors used the child’s Social Security number to claim them as dependents in their tax returns. This means the child’s and the abductor’s whereabouts are known to the IRS.

California Rep. Pete Stark and Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar, both from the Republican party, introduced legislation recently that would disbar the IRS from sharing some taxpayer information with law enforcement in order to locate missing children.
