The IRS has more data on us now than ever before, but what can we really do to protect our privacy?
According to USnews.com, the IRS will not go online to see if you are evading taxes —unless your tax return signals something suspicious. However, if the IRS flags you, they can start to accumulate data such as credit card transactions and even Facebook postings. So if you are making big purchases or going on Facebook to brag about how you are cheating or skirting the IRS, or to brag about the trip you took that you are falsely writing off as a business trip; you had better think again. Big Brother could be watching.
Now, this is probably not the case with most people, but wouldn’t it be nice to see what exactly is on your transcripts with the IRS? Good News. You can actually get a copy of your transcripts and find out what the IRS has on your record. There is a process to it but it’s a lot easier than you would think.
