Reduce Mail Waste

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

During the course of a Trust Fund Interview, we request Tax Returns from the Service Center. This is mainly so we can verify who is signing Returns.

1) We copy the return

2) Send the return back to service center


How we can save

- Scan Returns and send to Revenue Officers


Estimated Costs

$10 (Mail/UPS per return request)

x 10 (requests per yr)

x 5000 Revenue Officers


$500,000 Estimated Savings (and I don't have assess to the info needed to make this completely accurate, I think this projection is low)

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
