Yes, except: the laws that you refer to govern the unauthorized release of tax information BY GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS. That's especially true because these tax forms were NOT FEDERAL TAX FORMS. They are state tax forms, not governed by IRS regulations.

Did you even read IRS Publication 4639? There's no evidence that government officials released this information. When you say "the law on this matter is not ambiguous," I had to laugh. What you say is true, but not in the way that you think: it's unambiguously true that the IRS privacy laws DO NOT APPLY to the NY Times.
