IRS Can’t Secure Taxpayer Data, Launches New Online Tool Anyway

The Internal Revenue Service announced on December 1 the launch of a new online tool that will allow taxpayers to view and pay their account balances online.

Before using the tool, taxpayers must authenticate their identities through a Secure Access process. This is a two-step authentication process, which means returning users must have their credentials (username and password) plus a security code sent as a text to their mobile phones.

This comes after the news of IRS employees jeopardizing sensitive taxpayer information.
