How to Avoid Identity Theft This Tax Season

Stealing taxpayer personal information to steal tax refunds is becoming a fast-growing form of identity theft. After stealing the refunds, thieves can then use the personal information to commit other kinds of fraud in the taxpayer’s name. Follow these tips to help protect yourself during this tax season.

Check Your Mail

Identity thieves steal W-2s, 1099s and other tax documents in order to get your personal information. If you did not receive all of your tax information from your employers by February 14th, contact the IRS and your employers immediately.

Guard Hard Copies

Treat all tax documents like cash. Keep them out of sight and preferably in a file cabinet or safe. These documents include receipts, W2s, 1099s, home improvement invoices and medical bills that can be written off your taxes (if you can for your particular situation.)
