Yes. They certainly could have gotten your social security number, but it is unlikely for that to have happened within thirty seconds unless they knew exactly what they were looking for.

 

It depends on whether you were using an installed version of the tax software or the online version.

 

The online version requires a password for access and would be safer in a situation like you have described.

 

Only give remote access to your PC to someone you trust completely.
