How many tax returns?


2012 is here and for most people that means filing your taxes.  How many filings will be done under your social security number?  Between 2008 and 2010 the number of identity theft tax filings increased nearly 500%!

How can this affect you? Expecting a refund? The IRS may have sent your refund to an identity thief or even worse, because of the identity theft you could now owe taxes!
