irs data protectionTax time is right around the corner and the IRS is urging people to be cautious. With fraud and identity theft on the rise, they’ve announced a new campaign to encourage tax payers to protect themselves from identity theft. Here are a few key tips to help protect your information...

  • Use security software to protect you computer – With firewall and anti-virus protection, the sensitive data in your tax return will be encrypted and protected against those trying to steal your information.
  • You've heard it a million times, but using strong passwords can keep your information safe from password decrypting software that crooks may use to try to get into your personal accounts.
  • Beware of phishing emails and phone scams – A financial institution will never call you up and ask for your account number or social security number. This is usually a scammer attempting to trick you into giving away valuable information. Click here for more information on Phishing Scams.
  • Protect your personal information – There are several small things you do can protect your personal information. Do not carry your social security number with you. Properly dispose of old tax returns and other documents with sensitive data by shredding them before throwing them away. Keep a close eye on your credit reports and social security administration accounts, at least annually.
  • Do not over share on social media. Identity thieves are watching to see what your buying, where your shopping and when you might be on vacation.
