Privacy continues to be under attack as Big Brother US government turns to facial recognition and plans to require selfies in order for Americans to file their tax returns online.
Yahoo reports that the IRS will soon be requiring Americans to share selfies with the entity in order to file their tax returns online.
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is going to require users of its online tax payment services to create an identification account, which will involve sending off a selfie for facial recognition.
Security blogger Brian Krebs was the first to spot a message on the IRS website directing users to create an account with a company called ID.me.
“If you have an existing IRD username, please create a new ID.me account as soon as possible. We’re bringing you an improved sign-in experience. You won’t be able to log in with your existing IRS username and password starting in summer 2022,” the message read.
Creating an ID.me account involves submitting various pieces of official documentation, as well as taking a live video selfie.
An IRS spokesperson confirmed to Gizmodo that users will need an ID.me account to make and view payments, and access their tax records.
The Department of the Treasury did not immediately respond when contacted by Insider.
Big Brother has now morphed from Big Tech billionaires to the US government.

Please read below so that you can be saved. Jesus is the only way to Heaven. The Words below are directly from the Bible, so you can trust them.
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. (John 14:6)
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. (John 3:16-17)
If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes on Him will not be put to shame.” For there is no distinction between Jew and Greek, for the same Lord over all )is rich to all who call upon Him. For “whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:9-13)
“As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. IF YOU KEEP MY COMMANDMENTS, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. (John 15:9)
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
For those of us who persevere and do what Jesus says to do, we have this to look forward to in eternity: And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.”
