Revenue moves to cure problem site

Officials at the under-fire Inland Revenue, have today stated they are 'working around the clock' to cure security problems on its suspended online tax filing system.

The pioneering site, besieged by teething problems since its launch two years ago, has been suspended after users reported seeing information from other taxpayers.

However, the agency has moved quickly in an attempt to reassure customers.

An official Revenue statement, read: ‘The security of our customers’ data is of paramount importance to us.

‘A very small number of people told us that they had seen data relating to other people. When we learnt that we decided to temporarily withdraw the SA On-line service and we are now working around the clock to get to the bottom of the problem.

‘It is still possible to send in returns on line using an alternative product.’
