Abstract : This report responds to the Veterans' Affairs Committees' September 10, 1985, request that the General Accounting Office undertake, with the concurrence of the Joint Committee on Taxation, a one-time review of the accuracy of beneficiary income reporting under the veterans' pension program administered by the VA. The report focuses on the feasibility of using certain federal income tax databases-maintained by the Internal Revenue Service and the Social Security Administration-to verify the income information pension beneficiaries annually report to VA.
