    Ayotte Opening Statement for Budget Committee Field Hearing on Tax Identity Theft

    "Tax-related identity theft is a serious problem that is growing at epidemic proportions. According to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, about 2.4 million taxpayers' names or Social Security numbers were used to file fraudulent tax returns in 2013," said Ayotte. "That's a nearly tenfold increase since 2010. And with major data breaches occurring more frequently, I am concerned that we will see tax fraud affect even more taxpayers next year."

    Ayotte Announces Witness List for IRS Field Hearing

    Ayotte has pushed the IRS to improve its policies and better help identity theft victims protect themselves and their personal information, and was instrumental in securing a commitment from Commissioner John Koskinen to provide identity theft victims with copies of fraudulent tax returns. Ayotte also helped introduce the Social Security Identity Defense Act of 2015, which would require the Internal Revenue Service to notify potential victims of identity theft, something the agency has failed to do in the past. It also requires that the IRS notify law enforcement and that the Social Security Administration notify employers who submit fraudulently used Social Security numbers. The bill adds civil penalties and extends jail time for those who fraudulently use an individual's Social Security number.

We also recommit ourselves to finding those responsible for James' murder - we will not rest until they are brought to justice, and we must not relent in the fight against ISIS."

    "Fighting the prescription opioid, heroin, and fentanyl crisis will require the exploration of various ideas and proposals, especially those related to treatment of individuals with a substance use disorder," Ayotte wrote. "Given the need to explore all potential avenues to fight the opioid epidemic in New Hampshire, and at the request of local officials, I respectfully request that you visit the Sununu Center and meet with the bipartisan delegation of state officials who are reviewing the best use of the Center's underutilized parts to help address mental health and substance use disorders."
