Laptops Lost

(Fox News) - As you put the finishing touches on your tax returns it probably will not comfort you to know that the IRS has lost almost 500 laptop computers in the last three years — many containing sensitive taxpayer information.

A government audit says 490 laptops were either lost or stolen in 387 separate incidents between 2003 and 2006. Many of the computers were stolen from employees' vehicles or their homes. And the audit says IRS workers are not properly encrypting data or using password protection to safeguard taxpayer information.
