Is it safe to electronically file taxes? We're a bit leery as we live in SC where some tax records that were e-filed have been hacked. Mailed tax forms can get lost or stolen. What is the safest method to deliver taxes?

Didn't the hacking also include a breach of security with respect to taxpayers' social security numbers in cases in which the taxpayer paid by mail too?
