Gotta pay the privacy tax

from here and here (image source)

If ever there was an organization that a privacy tax would be paid to or filed with, Facebook would be the one. Of course, I don't mean a tax paid for the benefit of privacy - rather your privacy itself is the currency this tax is paid with.

Presumably H&R Block, TaxAct, and TaxSlayer were sending your tax data to Meta in addition to sending it to the government, rather than in place of sending it to the government. I'd hate to think they filing with the wrong entity.
