The report reveals that the IRS made 7.6 billion disclosures of tax return information to federal and state agencies (up from 5.3 billion in 2008 and 4.5 billion in 2007).
From the comments: That’s roughly 25 disclosures for every man, woman, and child, in this country. If you group us into average family units of four, then it’s roughly 100 disclosures for every taxable family unit.
This alone looks like a very good reason to change to a Fair Tax system. Currently, this is within the house and senate as HR25 and S296.
