IRS Plans to Let Tax Preparers Sell Your Tax Info
Obviously, there are lots of privacy issues here. I wonder if it will hurt the tax preparation business. I prepare my taxes myself using TurboTax or the HRBlock software (which I don't recommend). I certainly would be more hesitant to use a tax preparer if they were able to sell my info.
Additionally, it appears that, while the government constantly warns us of the dangers of identity theft, it plans to provide another source for identity thieves. Of course, it's been a long time since the government really cared about our privacy.
Contact your Congressman or Congresswoman regarding this issue. I already have.
