All specific information gained under the provisions of this Article which is used to determine the tax due from a taxpayer, whether furnished by the taxpayer or obtained through an audit, shall be treated by the Town and its officers, employees or legal representatives as confidential.
(1) Except as directed by judicial order or as provided in this Section, no Town officer, employee or legal representative shall divulge any confidential information. Nothing contained in this Section shall be construed to prohibit the delivery to a taxpayer or his or her duly authorized representative of a copy of such confidential information relating to such taxpayer, the publication of statistics so classified as to prevent the identification of particular taxpayers or the inspection of such confidential information by an officer, employee or legal representative of the Town.
(2) If directed by judicial order, the officials charged with the custody of such confidential information shall be required to provide only such information that is directly involved in the action or proceeding. (Ord. 1263, 2007)
