Criminal prosecutors, as well as family lawyers on the civil side, use a variety of legal strategies to locate missing and abducted children and to bring them home to their legal parents. Now, the Internal Revenue Service is using tax returns to ferret out information that might provide useful clues in ongoing investigations.

A new law, the Recovering Missing Children Act, signed into law by the President on June 30, 2016, now amends the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to permit the disclosure of certain tax return information for the purpose of missing or exploited children investigations.

Under the new law, federal agents will have authority to share information gathered through federal tax returns with state and local law enforcement agencies who work with them as part of a team investigation on particular cases.

The information will be limited to the missing child investigations, to grand jury proceedings, and to judicial and administrative proceedings.
