VITA Essentials QSRA 2017-01

Inside This Issue:  Policy Update on Expired Individual Identification Numbers (ITIN)

Purpose:
The Quality Site Requirements (QSRs) were developed to ensure VITA/TCE sites have consistent guidelines to assist with the operation of each site. IRS Quality Site Requirement Alerts (QSRA) are issued by IRS to help provide site/local coordinators and volunteers with reminders on QSR compliance.

Key Messages for IRS VITA/TCE Partners:
Site/local coordinators are to ensure all QSRAs are reviewed and discussed with all volunteers. It is recommended that you hold daily debriefings with your volunteers to review identified trends. This is also a good time to allow your volunteers the opportunity to read the alert(s), ask questions or discuss any concerns surrounding their tax preparation experience.

Contact information:
Partners are encouraged to direct any questions or concerns to their Relationship Manager.
