Information Security during Tax Season
Although there are only a few weeks left to file your taxes, tax fraud is still very prevalent this time of year.
Using good security practices such as two factor authorization when available, not using the same user ID and password across numerous accounts, and limiting sharing of your private information could reduce your chances of tax fraud and identity theft.
If you or someone you know have fallen victim to tax fraud, please contact the local police, the IRS and visit StopFraud.gov. Additional information is provided from the Washington Post, CNBC, Idtheft.about.com, and OnGuardOnline.gov.
