Washington proposes new bank reporting of all personal and business financial account info to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
A new government proposal would require banks to report deposits and withdrawals over $600 to the IRS on both personal and business accounts.
While community banks do not endorse such broad IRS access to their customers’ account information, consumers need to be aware of the potential effects of this proposal. We value your business and privacy, and want you to be informed of these possible changes.

Both these are provided by the Independent Community Banker’s Association.
