Senator Pat Toomey is giving a hand to investigators who are looking into tax fraud.

The Senator is promoting a new IRS pilot program for Pennsylvania and seven other states.

The IRS says there's a new trend in which some people file fake tax returns with legitimate Social Security numbers but investigators can't use taxpayer data to prosecute these people.

However this new program allows the IRS to share some taxpayer data with investigators.

Senator Toomey was also in Center Valley Monday speaking to the Lehigh Valley Chamber of Commerce at DeSales University.
