The IRS Is Going to Check Facebook to See If You Cheated on Your Taxes
Bad news…someone finally told the IRS about Facebook.
According to reports, this year, the IRS plans on checking your Facebook page and Twitter accounts, to see if you’re cheating on your taxes.
Like, let’s say you went to Key West for Spring Break, but you wrote off the flight and hotel as a business trip. An IRS agent might look for your photos to see if there’s proof you were actually just hammered drunk and half-naked.
Fortunately, it’s too much work for them to Facebook stalk ALL of us…so they’re only going to use social media as a tool when someone’s tax forms have been red flagged for an audit or a potential audit.
But still, let’s call this reminder number 45,603 that you should triple check your Facebook privacy settings.
