The Internal Revenue Service is finding the May hack of taxpayer information was much worse than originally reported.  The IRS hack was believed to violate the personal information of 114,000 taxpayers. IRS Commissioner John Koskinen said additional review revealed at least 220,000 more have been affected. Hackers also unsuccessfully attempted to access the information of nearly 300,000 taxpayers. Koskinen says all those affected, whether attempts were successful or unsuccessful, will receive a notification from them in the mail. Again, it will be a mailed notification. The agency will not reach out to affected taxpayers about this by phone or email.
