Virginia’s Amended Breach Notification Law Applies to Income Tax Information


Virginia’s amended breach law requires any signing income tax return preparer preparing Virginia individual income tax returns to notify the State Department of Taxation without unreasonable delay after the discovery or notification of unauthorized access and acquisition of unencrypted and unredacted return information that compromises the confidentiality of such information maintained by such signing income tax return preparer and that creates a reasonable belief that an unencrypted and unredacted version of such information was accessed and acquired by an unauthorized person and that causes, or such preparer reasonably believes has caused or will cause, identity theft or other fraud.  The required information includes the name and taxpayer identification number as well as the name of the signing income tax return preparer and the preparer’s tax identification number.
