for certain individuals and families with low income and resources. We may disclose
certain non-tax return information, including verification of Social Security Numbers
(SSN), to State and local agencies for their administration of the Medicaid program.

We may also disclose certain tax return information covered by the Earnings Recording
and Self-Employment Income System (60-0059) system of record, to State agencies that
