Why don’t they just give Chipotle a no-bid contract to prevent food poisoning at all restaurants?

The IRS will pay Equifax $7.25 million to verify taxpayer identities and help prevent fraud under a no-bid contract issued last week, even as lawmakers lash the embattled company about a massive security breach that exposed personal information of as many as 145.5 million Americans.
A contract award for Equifax’s data services was posted to the Federal Business Opportunities database Sept. 30 — the final day of the fiscal year. The credit agency will “verify taxpayer identity” and “assist in ongoing identity verification and validations” at the IRS, according to the award.

Guess if anyone knows about fraud it’s Equifax.

It’s the Federal government, nothing they do should surprise any of us anymore.

I feel like I’m living in Bizzaro land where everything is backwards.

Brutal, but hilarious.
Hey, I already may have had my credit record stolen, why not throw in my taxes too?
