Online Trust Alliance Finds 46% of IRS Free E-File Tax Services Fail to Adequately Protect Consumers

Wed, Feb 24, 2016

The Online Trust Alliance (OTA) today announced the results of its 2016 IRS Free E-File Audit & Honor Roll. The audit evaluates the privacy, security and consumer protection practices of the thirteen IRS-approved free e-filing tax services. After an assessment based on nearly 50 criteria, standards and internationally accepted privacy practices, six of the 13 websites, or 46 percent, failed due to poor site security and not taking steps to help protect consumers from fraudulent and malicious email. Conversely, the sites that performed specifically well received an "Honor Roll" status.
