IRS Denies Requests for Missing Children Information


At times, crucial information that could lead to the whereabouts of missing children may be in the hands of the IRS. For example, in a case where a couple is estranged from one another, one parent may take a child away the other parent, who in turn fles a missing child report. Suppose then that the parent with the child makes a claim for child deduction in his or her tax returns. This would mean the IRS has the address where the missing child might be.

For the record, about 200,000 children are reported missing in the US every year, most of who are due to marital conficts between estranged couples. And about 12,000 of these last for longer than 6 months and are abductions by one spouse who assumes a different identity in efforts to avoid being tracked down.
