The Internal Revenue Service (IRS), is a bureau of the U.S. Department of Treasury that is the U.S. tax collection agency and administers the Internal Revenue Code . To foster a tax system based on voluntary compliance, the public must maintain a high degree of confidence that the personal and financial information furnished to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is protected against unauthorized use, inspection, or disclosure.
Internal Revenue Service Publication 1075 (“IRS 1075”) sets standards for information security, guidelines, and agreements for protecting US government agencies and their agents that access federal tax information (FTI). This publication provides guidance to ensure the policies, practices, controls, and safeguards employed by recipient agencies, agents, or contractors adequately protect the confidentiality of FTI.
Google Cloud is able to support agencies protecting FTI in alignment with IRS 1075. For certain products, Google Cloud offers security controls to protect and store Federal Tax Information (FTI) data through Assured Workloads for Google Cloud Platform and Assured Controls for Google Workspace.
