If you find yourself to be a victim of identity on your tax return we can help you take the necessary steps to resolve the issue. First, you will need to file your return by mail with Form 14039 Identity Theft Affidavit which shows the IRS that you are aware of the problem and are the correct taxpayer. Second, you will want to contact the FTC to file an identity theft report and make sure all of your credit cards are secured. Third, contact your local police department so that they may investigate the matter further.
To protect yourself, make sure you keep all of your documents in a secure place, shred all documents when disposing of them, never carry your social security card in your wallet/purse, and beware of any scams asking for your social security number or other sensitive information over the phone.
