Legislation to protect tax privacy introduced

Legislators in Tennessee are introducing federal legislation to notify taxpayers whenever their personal tax information is accessed by the IRS. It's a good proposal to begin addressing the problems at that agency, but it will not solve everything.

Under our legislation, the secretary of the U.S. Treasury would have to notify, in writing, taxpayers each time the IRS accesses their tax accounts, tax returns or other tax return information.

Unfortunately this won't be enough by itself.
