Tax-related identity theft occurs when someone uses a stolen Social Security Number (SSN) to file a fraudulent tax return. Thieves may also use stolen Employer Identification Numbers (EINs) to create false W-2s in order to support tax-related fraud schemes. Tax-related identity theft can happen to both taxpayers and tax preparers.
a. Warning Signs of Identity Theft
• More than one return was filed with the taxpayer’s SSN and the taxpayer’s return gets rejected by the IRS.
• The taxpayer notices activity or receives IRS notices regarding a tax return in years where balances or refunds have been paid already.
b. IRS notices show the taxpayer has received wages from employers the taxpayer has not worked for.
• The IRS accepts the taxpayer’s return as an amended return, but the taxpayer has not filed a return for that tax year yet.
• We ensure we know exactly where we handle taxpayers’ information by maintaining a list of all the locations such as office buildings, storage facilities, filing cabinets, boxes, computers, etc.
• We make sure that file cabinets and doors are locked.
•We do background checks, information security training, and identity authentication training for employees who have access to a taxpayer information.
• As well as ensure that all staff use strong passwords that meet industry standards.
• Use encryption data of taxpayer information that is stored electronically, and during electronic transmissions.
• We protect all computers with up-to-date anti-virus, anti-spam and anti-spy software, firewalls, and spam filters and update them regularly.
• Tasha Taxes monitors computer system logs for unauthorized access.
• Have authorization requirements for the removal of the taxpayer information on any media. Following other measurements to securely destroy taxpayer information, use shredders for paper and overwrite software for hard drives.
• Have a secure backup for data that could be lost by vandalism or natural disaster.
• Implement measure that ensure we are careful not to leave taxpayer information unsecured on various places like desks, copy machines, mailboxes, vehicles, trash bins, office rooms, or at home.
• We take continue education training that helps us learn to recognize and avoid phishing emails, calls, or texts from thieves posing as legitimate organizations such as Provider, your bank(s), your credit card companies and even the IRS. We never give out sensitive information under pressure as phishers like to use scare tactics.
•We here at Tasha’s Taxes understand that Phishing emails and calls often appear to be generic and are not personalized, they often fail to reference an account you have with them, for example the exact taxpayer number or history. When in doubt, we contact the company and taxpayer directly to confirm if the request was legitimate.
•We do not allow any outside jump drives, flash drives, media sticks, from clients or otherwise to be plugged into our system, databases, or office equipment, as this is as a tactics that can be used to gain access intentionally or unintentionally to our database and software, to include we do not click on links or download attachments from unknown or suspicious email or websites.
Tasha’s Taxes takes every precaution to protect her clients as well as her company by ensuring that we are in compliance with the due diligence standards practices and protocols set forth by the IRS some of the ways we ensure that we are in compliance are by verifying your Income and Identity.
We do this by providing you with a detailed items needed list which is provided to you prior to your initial tax appointment. During this process we must confirm the identity of each taxpayer on the tax return by looking at one form of unexpired government issued photo identification (ID) for each taxpayer, as well as confirm the Social Security Number (SSN), or TIN, of each taxpayer and each dependent appearing on the tax return by requesting and reviewing the SSN cards.
Photocopies of the picture identification and SSNs will be made and kept as part of the taxpayer’s file where allowable by law.
If Tasha’s Taxes is suspicious of the identity of the taxpayer, we will ask for additional verification such as voter registration cards, work ID/Credentials, credit cards or personal references.
Tasha’s Taxes also scrutinize income documentation such as W-2s and other subjective or non-verifiable data used on forms and schedules. We will need to validate the taxpayer’s identity physically (in person). This applies to all identity documentation, including materials received via your email or electronic meetings such as ZOOM.
If any of your tax return information looks suspicious, verify sources of income and validate data that looks questionable. Tasha’s Taxes can also contact Central Site and ask to speak with our Risk Department. If we suspect fraud, we will not file the return. This measurement is put into place to protect Tasha’s Taxes, its staff, and its current and future tax clients as Filing a return when we suspect fraud could result in Tasha’s Taxes being subjected to civil penalty, among other punishment issued and determined by the IRS Criminal Investigation Unit.
Due to the heightened fraud in the tax industry, TASHA’S TAXES has set up processes to protect taxpayers from identity theft. Certain factors in tax returns may cause a taxpayer’s account to be flagged as potentially suspicious. Due to industry requirements and company policy, if a taxpayer account is flagged, Provider will place the funds received from the IRS on hold and perform additional account due diligence in order to verify the identity of the taxpayer.
This additional verification involves asking the taxpayers to submit an unexpired government issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license, or other identifying documents or information. The additional verification process can take up to 7 business days to complete. Once Provider can validate the identity of the taxpayer associated with the tax return filed, Provider releases the hold on the funds and disburses the funds to the taxpayer. Funds are held in a non-interest-bearing account while we wait for the taxpayer to respond to our enhanced due diligence request and while we perform our review. If the taxpayer does not respond to our request within a timely manner, or if we are unable to verify the taxpayer’s identity, we return the funds to the IRS. Many companies, including most banks, believe that tax refunds with suspicious account attributes are high risk, and rather than try to perform additional due diligence, they simply return the funds to the IRS. Provider believes a better option for valued taxpayers, when possible, is to try to perform additional steps to validate accounts and release the holds rather than immediately return funds to the IRS, which can take up to 12 weeks.
We do not allow any outside jump drives, flash drives, media sticks or electronic data drives from clients, to be plugged into our system, databases, or office equipment, as this is a tactic that can be used to gain access intentionally or unintentionally to our database and software, to include we do not click on links or download attachments from unknown or suspicious email or websites.
