The IRS is now friending you on Facebook.

The IRS is going to be (or has been) using Facebook to try to catch tax cheaters. Now, you really only need to worry about it if you have been flagged or reviewed for an audit. They are really trying to check for things like writing off business trips that were really vacations.

Luckily, a really great way to avoid them creeping is to heighten your Facebook privacy settings.

So, if you don't and you are a cheater on your taxes you'll probably get caught.
