Your privacy and confidentiality

Like any major organization, we have a privacy policy that tells you how we treat your confidential information gathered from our website and applications. See our Privacy Policy for more information. 

Confidentiality

The Tax Law prohibits us from disclosing information obtained from a tax return or during an audit to any unauthorized person. The Tax Law, however, does permit us to share your tax information with the IRS and other government agencies, within defined standards of secrecy and sharing agreements. You have the right to expect that any information you provide to the Tax Department will not be disclosed unless authorized by you or by law.
