A while back I wrote about an IRS program that allowed taxpayers to set up an online account to look at their personal tax information. Later I wrote about a report that the program had been compromised, allowing unauthorized access to taxpayers' personal data.
Now it’s being reported that the number of taxpayers whose personal data was exposed is over 300,000, more than three times the IRS’ original estimate.
Sure, let’s have the government run a bank for consumers. I’m confident the government will do a much better job (lower cost, better service, better security) than the local credit union, aren’t you?
