Disclosing tax information to an unauthorized person(s) is a federal crime.

(a) Returns and return information

(1) Federal employees and other persons

It shall be unlawful for any officer or employee of the United
States or any person described in section 6103(n) (or an officer or
employee of any such person), or any former officer or employee,
willfully to disclose to any person, except as authorized in this
title, any return or return information (as defined in section
6103(b)). Any violation of this paragraph shall be a felony
punishable upon conviction by a fine in any amount not exceeding
$5,000, or imprisonment of not more than 5 years, or both, together
with the costs of prosecution, and if such offense is committed by
any officer or employee of the United States, he shall, in addition

A family member, who is a mid-level manager at the IRS in KC, tells me every peek at or manipulation of electronic tax records is logged. Assuming so, this shouldn't require any lengthy investigation, unless there's been some tampering with the log.
