Identity Theft

Posted in: News, Tax

More and more taxpayers are experiencing identity theft; their refunds are stolen by culprits who have obtained enough of the taxpayer’s personal information to file a return before the taxpayer does. They submit a change of address form and then paper file a return. Electronically filed returns require additional information from the prior year’s return which helps protect this from happening. Our best advice to you is to file as early as you can.
