Google collected data too:

Popular tax prep software including TaxAct, TaxSlayer and H&R Block sent sensitive financial information to Facebook parent company Meta, an investigation by The Markup found.

Sending such information violates Meta’s policies and a spokesperson said its system is designed to filter out potentially sensitive data.
