A man was sentenced to prison for trying to hack Trump’s tax return — here’s how to safeguard yours

A Louisiana man has been sentenced to 18 months in prison after going to great lengths to attempt to obtain President Donald Trump’s tax returns.

Jordan Hamlett, 32, pleaded guilty to using the Internal Revenue Service’s Data Retrieval Tool — a digital service that transfers tax return information into the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (“FAFSA”) — in an attempt to obtain the president’s federal tax information on six separate occasions, the U.S. Department of Justice said Wednesday. He has been ordered to pay $14,794.96 in restitution to the U.S. Department of Education and a $100 special assessment, in addition to the 18-month prison sentence.
