We all know social security cards are one of the most important documents needed to survive the twenty-first century and that they should be handled with care. The IRS even provides literature on how to keep them safe and how to identify identity theft. But even the IRS falls pray to human err. The beginning of July not only brought with it summer’s heat, but an IRS slipup that resulted in over a thousand social security numbers revealed on the Internet. Although the numbers were exposed for less than 24 hours, the damage has been done. For more information on the incident and how it is being taken care of, check out the full article HERE.
