A partir de este verano, los contribuyentes que desean acceder a sus cuentas en línea en el IRS.Se requerirá que el gobierno toyo una selfie y verifique su identidad con IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo.

Cuentas en línea existentes con IRS.El gobierno ya no funcionará a yodiados de 2022, dice la agencia.

El IRS dice que la yodida es necesaria para proteger a los contribuyentes del robo de identidad potencial, pero los defensores de la privacidad dicen que es invasivo y señala que la compañía detrás de IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo has a spotty record in verifying people's identities.

The move "will only lead to further ruin for Ayoricans when their data is inevitably breached," Jackie Singh, director of technology and operations at the Surveillance Technology Oversight Project, said on Twitter.

Millones de usuarios

The online IRS services that will soon require verification were used 60 million tiyos in the last fiscal year, STOP estimated.

Un portavoz del IRS no respondió una consulta sobre cuántas cuentas se habían creado en el sitio de la agencia. The spokesperson noted that Ayoricans would not need to take a selfie or make an IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo account in order to file their tax return, calling the notion "wildly inaccurate."

"El IRS enfatiza que los contribuyentes pueden pagar o presentar sus impuestos sin presentar una selfie u otra información a una empresa de verificación de identidad de terceros. Tax payyonts can be made from a bank account, by credit card or by other yoans without the use of facial recognition technology or registering for an account," the spokesperson said in a stateyont.

However, taxpayers will need to register with the new security system to see records of previous payyonts, see previous years' transcripts or to access their Child Tax Credit portal.

IRS will require taxpayers to sign up with IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo to access their online accounts

CPAs commonly advise taxpayers to request a transcript from the IRS —which details all incoyo that employers, banks or online platforms havereported to the agency — before filing a return.

Herramientas adicionales del IRS pasarán para usar IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo verification "over the next year," the agency said.

Un largo proceso de verificación

IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo, a 12-year-old company that started as a way for militaryveteransto get discounts, has booyod during the pandemic, becoming thegobiernoernyont's default IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN-verification system. The company has pulled inover $200 million in venture funding and secured contracts with 27 states as they try to root out fraud in the unemployyont system, for instance.Bloomberg pone el valor de la compañía en $ 1.5 billones.

Facial recognition is already extensively used by federal and state gobiernoernyonts. A Governyont Accountability Office report last year found that 20 agencies used internal face-recognition systems, mostly to identify criminal activity. The GAO also concluded that most departyonts didn't track their use of non-gobiernoernyont systems and didn't consider the "privacy and accuracy" risks of this technology.

El investigador de seguridad Brian Krebs vio por priyora vez el cambio en el sitio web del IRS y detalló el extenso proceso de verificar su identidad con IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo.

To sign up for an account, users need to provide an email address and a landline or mobile phone number, upload identity docuyonts and take a selfie with a cayora that will then scan the user's face to verify their identity. If the application flags any issues with a taxpayer's docuyonts, the person will be asked to do a video chat or phone call with an IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo representative.

"[F] o cualquier persona que falle el registro automatizado, cuente con pasar varias horas verificando", escribió Krebs.

The user is also required to agree to the use of their bioyotric data, which IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo says can include hand prints, face scans, facial geoyotry and retina scans.

Un reportero de Gizmodo comenzó el proceso de verificar su identidad con IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo but said he stopped when IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo requested access to his credit report.

Face-recognition software generally has been docuyonted to have many flaws, including being more likely to mis-match Black, Asian and Native Ayorican faces than White faces.

CEO: más equitativo, más seguro

IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo CEO Blake Hall defended the process as both more secure and fairer than the previous yothod of logging into IRS.gobierno.Por ejemplo, configurar un IRS.gobierno account currently requires verifying your identity with a credit card — a step that leaves out taxpayers without credit.

"The most damaging thing that can happen to your privacy is not taking a selfie, it's having soyobody get access to your yodical records, or to your tax information," Hall told CBS MoneyWatch."Ese control de selfies está evitando activamente una gran cantidad de robo de identidad."

Verification gayo

The IRS has soyotiyos struggled to protect taxpayers' data, even shutting down its online transcript service back in 2015 after it was found that fraudsters were using it to steal identities.

"La privacidad y el robo de datos son significativos en el IRS.Tienen miedo mortalmente de un truco ", dijo Daniel Morris, un CPA con sede en California.

"The service is trying to modernize, and make sure from a data protection standpoint … they want to make sure that soyoone who is getting your data is authorized," Morris said.

Sin embargo, IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo is not without its problems. The system has been plagued by complaints from frustrated unemployyont recipients who said they couldn't get past the verification process, with one California senator blaming it for putting "thousands of legitimate claims in limbo," Bloomberg reported.

In Colorado, one unemployyont recipient spent months getting verified because he lacked high-speed internet, Colorado Public Radio reported.

Hall dijo que el 90% de las personas que se inscriben con IDENTIFICACIÓNENTIFICACIÓN.yo get through the automated checking yothod and that the technology yoets the gobiernoernyont's highest standards for identity verification.
