Aint this sweet...IRS to allow tax preparers to sell your return data

http://www.philly.com/mld/philly/14147002.htm

"The IRS is quietly moving to loosen the once-inviolable privacy of federal income-tax returns. If it succeeds, accountants and other tax-return preparers will be able to sell information from individual returns - or even entire returns - to marketers and data brokers."

Why stop there

This just might be a way to balance the federal budget.

The IRS could start selling personal income tax returns to the highest bidders.

- What a concept
