Don’t fall victim to tax scams! Remember that if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably is.
Here are some of the recent 2014 tax scams the Internal Revenue Service wants you to be aware of:
(1) Identity Theft
Identity theft occurs when someone uses your personal information, such as your name, Social Security Number (SSN) or other identifying information – without your permission – to commit fraud or other crimes. In many cases, an identity thief uses a legitimate taxpayer’s identity to fraudulently file a tax return and claim a refund.
