    IRS Notice 2009-93: Truncating Social Security Numbers on Paper Payee Statements

    There are 3 requirements they must satisfy in order for a filer to mask TINs.

    1. The identifying number is a social security number, IRS individual taxpayer identification number, or IRS adoption taxpayer identification number.
    2. The identifying number is truncated by replacing the first five digits of the nine-digit number with asterisks or Xs (for example, a social security number 123-45-6789 would appear on the paper payee statement as ***-**-6789 or XXX-XX-6789).
    3. The truncated identifying number appears on a paper payee statement (including substitute and composite substitute statements) in the Form 1098 series, Form 1099 series, or Form 5498 series for calendar year 2009 or 2010.
