Why Take Action Against Tax Fraud?


Tax Fraud: Easy For The Thief, Stressful For The Victim

While tax fraud (also called "tax identity theft") is easy for the thief, it’s a stressful, lengthy ordeal for the victim. The unfortunate reality is that tax fraud is more common than you’d like to think. Tax identity theft targets anyone with a name, birthdate, and social security number - and once an identity is breached, it’s unlikely to ever be contained again. The last thing a taxpayer looks forward to is that stress, more paperwork, and multiple interactions with the IRS. For many, the biggest inconvenience of tax identity theft is a refund delay that can go on for up to 6 months, sometimes longer.
