Submission + - IRS Can Read Your Email Without Warrant for Tax Info (salon.com)

kodiaktau writes: The ACLU has issued a FOIA request to determine how the IRS is using its warrantless ability to read email. The request is based on the antiquated Electronic Communication Protection Act federal agencies can and do request and read email that is over 180 days old. The IRS response can be found at http://www.aclu.org/national-security/irs-response-warrantless-electronic-communications-foia-request. The IRS asserts that it can and will continue to make warrantless requests to ISPs to track down tax evasion. http://www.irs.gov/irm/part9/irm_09-004-006.html#d0e319.
