Privacy Act Notice
Section 61 09 of the Internal Revenue Code requires you to provide your correct TIN to persons who must file information returns with the IRS to report interest,
dividends, and certain other income paid to you, mortgage interest you paid, the acquisition or abandonment of secured property, cancellation of debt, or
contributions you made to an IRA, or Archer MSA or HSA. The IRS uses the numbers for identification purposes and to help veri fy the accuracy of your tax return.
The IRS may also provide this information to the Department of Justice for civil and criminal litigation, and to cities, states, the District of Columbia, and U.S.
possessions to carry out their tax laws. We may also disclose this information to other countries under a tax treaty, to fede ral and state agencies to enforce federal
nontax criminal laws, or to federal law enforcement and intelligence agencies to combat terrorism.
  You must provide your TIN whether or not you are required to file a tax return. Payers must generally withhold 28% of taxable interest, dividend, and certain other
payments to a payee who does not give a TIN to a payer. Certain penalties may also apply.
