Why MID wants your 4506-T form

August 1, 2013 

Regarding the July 27 letter "MID invades our privacy": There isn't anything wrong with Modesto Irrigation District requesting the 4506-T form.

Unfortunately, there are dishonest people who print out blank 1040 forms and submit them with limited financial information. I know of someone who did this on behalf of her mother for the low-income discount when her mother didn't qualify for it.
