What is the Security Summit?

The Security Summit was established in 2015 after the Internal Revenue Service reported a significant increase in identity theft tax refund fraud scams. An information-sharing organization made up of the IRS, state departments of revenue, and private tax industry partners, the Summit has helped reduce the number of successful scams through data-security education and outreach programs for taxpayers and tax professionals.

Security Summit programs and resources include:

  • National Tax Security Awareness Week
  • The “Security Six” Data Security Recommendations
  • The Identity Theft Tax Refund Fraud – Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC)
  • Identity Theft Central
  • Regular tax scam and consumer alerts
