Fighting tax identity theft is a team effort. The IRS has successfully partnered with state tax agencies, tax preparers, and others to reduce tax fraud and identity theft.
But that doesn’t mean consumers can let their guard down. As tax season begins, there are steps you can take to lower your risk of tax fraud and identity theft.
FIGHTING TAX IDENTITY THEFT, ONE RETURN AT A TIME
Tax season in the United States begins Monday, January 29, which also marks the beginning of Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week. Tax identity theft occurs when someone else uses your Social Security number to file a fraudulent return to get a tax refund, or your personal information is used to secure employment, which can make it appear you earned more income than you actually did.
