In a “You cannot make this up moment“, the IRS reported on Tuesday the 26th, a clever hacker(s) managed to get over 100 thousand tax returns.
The hacks were via a request for transcript, much like a bank or mortgage company would do to confirm your filed return was the same as the one you may be showing them.
Most Important Item of the IRS hack
The IRS is going to send a letter to those they believe information was stolen. We will update you as more information is released, but for now be on the watch for a letter.
In this crazy cyberworld, also be on the watch for a fake/hack letter …. I know, you gotta be kidding me…nope !
School is out
Today my first grader has a new curvy number in front of his grade level and my fourth grade princess “graduates” from her school, and heads to middle school… formal ceremony, funny five-year video, tons of mom (and dad) tears not withstanding, I will be out most of the afternoon !
