Surprise! Facebook has been receiving users’ financial info from tax preparers - The Verge Major tax filing services such as H&R Block, TaxAct, and TaxSlayer have been quietly transmitting sensitive financial information to Facebook when Americans file their taxes online, The Markup has learned. The data, sent through widely used code called the Meta Pixel, includes not only information like names and email addresses but often even more detailed information, including data on users’ income, filing status, refund amounts, and dependents’ college scholarship amounts. Memo on 'free' anything - there is No Free Lunch. These bastards are going to make their $$ someway - selling user data is an easy buck. No, I don't file online either. We mail in our forms via delivery confirmed USPS. On April 1 -which is appropriate IMO.
