WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, House Ways and Means Committee Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) issued the following statement after the House passed the Stolen Identity Refund Fraud Prevention Act (H.R. 3832). Congressmen Jim Renacci (R-OH) and John Lewis (D-GA) introduced this bipartisan legislation to protect American taxpayers from tax-related identity theft.
“Every year, people across the country discover they are a victim of tax-related identity theft. Congressman Jim Renacci turned his personal experience as a victim of identity theft into a legislative solution that will help protect all Americans. The bill we passed today will prevent fraud, increase transparency, and improve IRS customer service to better serve taxpayers. I appreciate Congressman Renacci’s leadership against a crime that impacts so many Americans.”
