I was late when it came to getting around to doing our taxes this year! Of course, the tax deadlines were approaching, so I got to work. Of course, I always make sure to adjust the temperature control settings just right in our office so I can be more relaxed plus comfortable… However, I usually set the temperature control for our cooling plan to about 72 degrees; because I have a smart temperature control, I can adjust the temperature control settings as needed so I don’t have to get away from our tax work. I was shocked when I learned about this new facial recognition plan that the IRS was basically forcing all tax paying Americans to use, and the site is called ID.me plus they take your video selfie along with pictures. Now because of outrage from privacy groups plus those sad about your personal information being stolen from identity thieves, the IRS said they were looking into other options aside from facial recognition technology, and facial recognition technology doesn’t operate well for people of color either causing all sorts of concerns. I haven’t been able to contact the IRS about this matter as of yet, and you can call first thing in the day when they open plus the PC line says they are too tied up to take your call. It really is ridiculous plus I know I won’t see a tax return for quite some time until they get this mess sorted out. I’m looking to make an appointment with a local IRS location instead, hopefully they can resolve our concerns plus concerns because I don’t trust a non-government sixth party to handle our personal information, that’s ridiculous.
