Internal Revenue Service Data Theft Internal Revenue Service Commissioner John Koskinen and Inspector General for Tax Administration Russell George testified on the recent data theft that compromised the private information of over 100,000 taxpayers. Thieves were able to access private information by utilizing a web portal for retrieving old tax documents.

In testimony, Mr. Koskinen said upgrading data security systems for the IRS was difficult because of recent budget cuts and the 2013 expiration of a special hiring authority that allowed the agency to circumvent the federal hiring process for essential or high-demand positions, particularly those focused on data security. close
