      In this week’s TaxVine preamble, our Senior Advocate, Robyn Jacobson, CTA, discusses the new client verification guidelines that will impose new obligations on tax practitioners in an effort to address identity theft. 

      Robyn explains identify theft, tax refund fraud and what the new client verification guidelines mean for tax practitioners.

      What about proof of identity for international clients. It is often not possible to meet in person (Option 1), no ATO records (option 2) and because all identity documents are from overseas, no source DVS (option 3). TPB and ATO need to provide alternatives in these circumstances.
