Congressional Budget Office Cost Estimate: H.R. 744: STOP Identity Theft Act of 2013 [open pdf - 18KB]
Alternate Title: CBO Cost Estimate: H.R. 744: STOP Identity Theft Act of 2013
This is a Congressional Budget Office (CBO) cost estimate for H.R. 744. From the document: "H.R. 744 would direct the Department of Justice (DOJ) to better utilize its existing resources to combat identity theft related to the filing of tax returns. The department currently allocates its funding to investigate and prosecute a wide range of criminal activity, including identity theft. CBO expects that the legislation could result in a reallocation of DOJ resources, but we estimate that implementing the bill would have no significant net cost to the federal government. Enacting H.R. 744 would not affect direct spending or revenues; therefore, pay-as-you-go procedures do not apply."
