Monday, April 18, 2016 is the filing deadline for Internal Revenue Service tax returns. The IRS uses Social Security Numbers to verify tax returns and every year, scammers steal SSNs to get somebody else’s tax refund or a job. In 2015, the IRS investigated and caught many identity thieves and tax fraudsters, including a ringleader of a $24 million stolen ID tax refund fraud ring.
To educate the public about ID theft, the Federal Trade Commission is hosting Tax Identity Theft Awareness Week during the week of Jan. 25. Events will include Twitter chats and webinars.
