IRS Dumps Proposal to Ask Charities for SSNs of Donors

IRS Dumps Proposal to Ask Charities for SSNs of Donors

Printer-friendly version

Tim Delaney, president and CEO of the National Council of Nonprofits, had expressed concern about the proposal opening the door for scam artists who would get access to the donees’ personal information.

“Nonprofits have neither the financial resources nor sufficient staffing to combat hackers who will see an easy source for Social Security information,” he wrote. “This also creates a liability nightmare for innocent nonprofits…To be asked to share their address, their credit card number and their Social Security number all in the same place would be enough to scare even the most committed donor to decline to give.”
