Minutes for HB2408 - Committee on Taxation

Short Title

Requiring people with access to federal tax information to be fingerprinted.

Minutes Content for Tue, Mar 28, 2017

Scott Wells, Assistant Revisor provided an overview on HB2408 noting the bill would allow the Secretary of Revenue to require as a qualification for employment any person having access to federal tax information received from the IRS be fingerprinted and submit to a state national criminal history background check. 

Kathleen Smith, Director, Department of Revenue summarized the cost for finger printing and a criminal history background check for 617 employees would be $28,999.  This requirement will protect the receipt of federal tax information received from the IRS.  

Chase Blasi provided an update on HB2387 to the Committee which became law last week noting the Department of Revenue has received 18 sales tax exemptions which is double from last year. 

Mr. Blasi testified as a proponent for HB2408 on behalf of Robert Challquist, Attorney, Kansas Department of Revenue. (Attachment 1)
