The IRS is planning a "pilot" project to require "pre-certification" of EITC recipients beginning in August 2003. The project is targeted at filers who claim children who are not their own. Comments on the form that requires documentation or affidavits proving residency of children with the claiming tax filer for six months of the tax year were due July 14. Comments on the overall process are can be made through December 31, 2003. See the IRS announcement for more information.
