IRS Detects Massive Data Breach in “Get Transcript” Application

Last week the Internal Revenue Service warned of a huge data breach of its on-line “Get Transcript” application that allowed tax returns of approximately 104,000 taxpayers to be accessed by identity thieves.

Has anyone had a client who was touched by this issue?

  1. No clients involved with identity theft. Indirectly affected one client due a substantial refund. The filed timely and just received their refund about a week ago. I was notified in June via a ltr 12-c to send in documents which should have been included in e-filed return.
