What is IRS 1075 ?
Internal Revenue Service Publication 1075 (IRS 1075) provides guidance for US government agencies and their agents that access federal tax information to ensure that they use policies, practices, and controls to protect its confidentiality. IRS 1075 aims to minimize the risk of loss, breach, or misuse of federal tax information held by external government agencies.
To protect federal tax information, IRS 1075 prescribes security and privacy controls for application, platform, and datacenter services. To ensure that government agencies, who receive federal tax information apply those controls, the IRS established the Safeguards Program, which includes periodic reviews of these agencies and their contractors.
The mission of the Office of Safeguards is to promote taxpayer confidence in the integrity of the tax system by ensuring the confidentiality of IRS information provided to federal, state, and local agencies. It applies to federal, state, and local agencies with whom IRS shares federal tax information, and it defines a broad set of management, operations, and technology specific security controls that must be in place to protect federal tax information.
This solution will facilitate the implementation of IRS 1075.
