MID invades our privacy

July 26, 2013 

You receive a break on your electric bill from the Modesto Irrigation District if you use certain medical equipment, which is wonderful. However, now MID requires you to submit a 4506-T form for them to obtain the right to view your tax forms to make sure your income fits their standards.

Does anyone besides me think this is so, so wrong? You already have to provide proof of your income, now this. I think this is going way to far.
