Tax Resources › Tax Identity Theft Information Center

The statistics on Stolen Identity Refund Fraud are sobering. According to the General Accountability Office, the Internal Revenue Service detected almost 915,000 cases of identity theft last year. When Americans file about 93 million Form 1040s per year, this accounts for nearly 1% of all individual tax returns. Scarier still, in fiscal year 2015, the IRS initiated a mere 776 identity theft related criminal investigations.
