Tax Data Breech

Wednesday November 23, 2022 – There is some disturbing news about your most private data – your tax data.  It appears that some of the top tax preparation software companies have been sharing taxpayer data with Big Tech Companies. Major tax filing services such as H&R Block, TaxAct, and TaxSlayer have been sharing date secretly with companies like Facebook and Google.

Not only would this be a gross violation of their customers’ trust – it could be a violation of the law.  The companies involved here are claiming this was all inadvertent.  “We did NOT know and were never notified that personal tax information was being collected by Facebook from the Pixel,” said a vendor of TaxSlayer.

It can be unsettling to learn these large organizations are working together to violate taxpayers’ privacy rights.
