Peoria, AZ asked in Gov & Administrative Law and Tax Law for Arizona

Q: Can I bring suit against the IRS for providing my address to the Trump administration?


I recently received a letter from the Trump administration informing me that my Economic Impact Payment had arrived.

I was under the impression that it was illegal for the IRS to share my tax information with third parties except under certtain well defined circumstances (Code Sec. 7431).

Can I bring suit against the IRS for providing my address to the Trump administration?

Thank you

A: First, you can sue anyone for anything.

The question is can you survive summary judgement, I have no clue. I'd need way more information to make a determination.

I would only make that determination after you retained me as your attorney.

If you want an answer you're likely going to have to put down a deposit and hire someone.
