IRS: Somebody Else Got $8,952 in Your Name

web posted April 18, 2014

WESTSIDE Think this can't happen to you? That it only happens to others? Tell that to a Westside woman who filed her taxes this week and was told someone else used her social security number to obtain a tax refund of $8,952 in March. A second attempt was made last week, but was denied.

The woman told an Edgefield County Sheriff's Deputy she learned of the fraud and identity theft when she filed on April 14, the day before "Tax Day". The IRS agent advised her to file a complaint since her personal information had been compromised.

The report did not mention if the woman's normal tax returns would be approved, in spite to the fake refund granted in March. The report did not list where the return was sent.

Each year the IRS reports sending out billions of dollars in fake tax returns each year, many going to illegal aliens who use stolen social security numbers to file the returns.

If you are notified of such a use on your returns, or any other identity theft, contact your local law enforcement agency at once.
