Resolution When Thieves File Fraudulent Tax Returns In Your Name
A thief can use your identity to fraudulently file a tax return in your name and claim a refund. Typically, your Social Security number is stolen and used to file a false return and claim an inflated refund. With prominent data breaches and leaks relating to well-known companies, you may not even be aware that your personal information has been compromised.
In other cases, criminals steal your login for an online tax return and divert your refund to their own account. If this is done quickly and cleverly enough, months may pass before you realize something is wrong.
When you hire The Peck Group, LC, our team will work directly with the IRS to resolve all fraudulent tax return matters and help you avoid any delays in recovering your identity and your rightful tax refund. We will complete and submit an IRS identity theft affidavit and help you take advantage of new IRS procedures established to more effectively combat identity theft, including:
- Navigating the new governance structure to oversee identity theft
- New quality review processes to ensure identity theft matters are resolved properly
- Improved procedures in the IRS Identity Protection Specialized Unit
