Columbia, SC — Please tell me what is “free” about the credit monitoring the state is offering to consumers whose S.C. tax return information was stolen by hackers? Is Gov. Nikki Haley paying for it? Maybe our legislators? How about the Department of Revenue? No. The taxpayers whose information was stolen are the ones paying for it.
As with all other blunders that our governments continue to cause, it is the taxpayer who foots the bill. There is no accountability anymore. And, people, it’s not going to get any better.
