Communications

From: Michael Morisy

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

A copy of any letters, emails, or other written and electronic notifications sent to individuals who had Personally Identifiable Information (PII), including names, birth dates, and/or home addresses, inadvertently released by the IRS.

I also request copies of notification procedures governing privacy breaches.

In cases where bulk communications are sent, I agree to limit this request to one copy of the communication as long as the total number of that communication is also released.

For reference in processing this request, such privacy breach was publicly detailed here:

https://bulk.resource.org/irs.gov/eo/doc/irs.gov.20130701.pdf

I also request that, if appropriate, fees be waived as I believe this request is in the public interest. The requested documents will be made available to the general public free of charge as part of the public information service at MuckRock.com, processed by a representative of the news media/press and is made in the process of news gathering and not for commercial usage.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Michael Morisy
