Support for SSN Masking
IRS Notice 2009-93 allows filers to mask Social Security Numbers on paper payee statements. We are pleased to announce that SSN Masking will be incorporated into its service.
The SSN Masking feature prevents companies from exposing themselves to unnecessary risks and liability. With the IRS's approval of SSN Masking, the responsibility to protect the security and identity of recipients now falls onto the companies that send out statements that include social security numbers. IRS Notice 2009-93: Truncating Social Security Numbers on Paper Payee Statements
There are 3 requirements that must be satisfied in order for a filer to mask TINs:
- The identifying number is a social security number, IRS individual taxpayer identification number, or IRS adoption taxpayer identification number.
- The identifying number is truncated by replacing the first five digits of the nine-digit number with asterisks or Xs (for example, a social security number 123-45-6789 would appear on the paper payee statement as ***-**-6789 or XXX-XX-6789).
- The truncated identifying number appears on a paper payee statement (including substitute and composite substitute statements) in the Form 1098 series, Form 1099 series, or Form 5498 series for calendar year 2009 or 2010.

Credit Card Transactions Could Pose Audit Risk
Small business owners beware: the IRS may more closely scrutinize reporting of credit card transactions after it was criticized for lax enforcement.
The IRS' overseer, the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), recently said the IRS had been missing opportunities to audit tax returns that had large discrepancies between income and the card payments reported on Forms 1099-K.
This means small businesses that accept credit, debit or gift card payments can expect to draw the attention of IRS auditors if there are material differences between what is reported on their tax returns and what is on their 1099-Ks.
