Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. § 552, gives any person the right to access records maintained by a Federal agency except those records protected from disclosure under one or more of the nine (9) FOIA exemptions or three (3) law enforcement record exclusions. The statute also provides administrative and judicial remedies for those denied access to agency records.

Please consult this website for information on How to Make a FOIA Request and the Treasury FOIA Regulations if you plan to make a FOIA request to the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) for its records. Before submitting a FOIA request, you should first search the FOIA Library which contains records already available to the public. The TIGTA records you seek may already be publically available.

At TIGTA, we respond to all FOIA requests in a timely manner. TIGTA Disclosure Branch uses multi-track processing queues; requests are designated as simple (quick turnaround) or complex (voluminous records and/or lengthy consultations), or are granted expedited handling. We will acknowledge the receipt of your FOIA request promptly and provide you a tracking number and the name and contact information of the specialist handling your request.

We hope you will find this site informative and that it will give you a better understanding of the FOIA and its implementation by TIGTA.
