Fake tax refund scams could affect targets for years


Michelle Singletary offers a disturbing commentary in the Business Section of the Washington Post, Sunday, January 31, 2016, “Victims of tax-fraud could be looking over their shoulders for years”  .

 The article specifically addresses fake tax returns on stolen SSN’s or identities.

The IRS has an “identity protection specialized unit” and can offer an “Identity Protection Personal Identification Number” or IPPIN.

It’s getting time to start gathering together all the info for the 2015 taxes.
