PAGE 22 I U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N COMPUTER RED TAPE States Get Data On IRS Returns : WASHINGTON (AP) - A new twist has been added in the decades-old arrangement between the federal government and the states to exchange data from individual income tax returns. : ' The Internal Revenue Service said it is now making the output of its computers in the form of magnetic tapes available to 26 states and the District of Co- .lumbia for use in enforcing tax ·'" laws. · This means income and other figures on federal tax returns can be matched in a computer '·with the figures reported by the same persons on their state tax '"returns. IRS said it also is possible to detect persons, who file either a federal or state t.ax return but not both. .Agreements on computer tapes with other states ,,. are possible later. This is only the latest development, IRS said, in a data exchange program authorized by Congress more than 30 years ago. Tax officials from every state have the right under law to inspect income tax-returns even without a formal agreement signed by the governor and the Internal Revenue commissioner, IRS said. .,..·;. There are now 44 formal agreements in effect but IRS said they, provide only a framework and routine for implementing the inspection right. The computer, tapes are the new twist in the routine. / ; " Despite the exchange program, IRS insists data on individual income tax returns are confidential, a description disputed in the past by some Congress members. Federal and state employes .are barred by. law from any unauthorized disclosure of a federal tax return, IRS said. But the tax returns Americans must prepare by the April 15 deadline will tell the government more than how much-tax tv'each citizen owns.

WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1963 Nighttime Memory Flash Restores True Identity · · »/ HYDESVILLE, Calif. (AP) -- A 65-year-old man says a sudden, middle-of-fhe-night burst of recollection apparently has restored memories of his past and won him social" security for his future. He says this is the way it was: In December 1924 he got tossed olf --a freight car- near Indio, Calif., and knocked unconscious. In his wallet he found the name Charles Howard Randaille. Changing it to Randall he- Served as a draftee in the U.S. Army in World War K. Worked at an assortment of jbs. Ran a second hand store at Hydesville, 25 miles south of Eureka, where he met and married a widow with four daughters. Was unable at last to work b e c a u s e of emphysema; needed social security. But thatrequired proof of birth.. Forbears, he had searched without success -for offic.al identity. ' Then it happened; "It all came back clear as .1 bell at 3 o'clock- one morning last month, 1 ' he said. He remembered he was Lawrence Patrick Brennan, a Canadian; serveVin'the Canadian Army · in World ..War I, and 'that the Sudbury.i. (Qn- tario) Star carried a story of his homecohiing. His, wife, Haze], 33, now the mother of a fifth daughter, by her second Husband, wrote the Star a letter. The Star's city editor confirmed her husband's recollection that he was the son o£ Patrick Brennan, had a brother and two sisters. Now, says Randall (or Brennan), social security has been convinced of his identity by his recollection of the names of other boys in his confirmation class at St. Anne's Parish, Sucibury.
