“1. The IRS is taking new steps to protect your data.

You may not believe it, but the IRS is looking out for you. Under new policies announced by the IRS, taxpayers may receive a letter when the service stops suspicious tax returns that have indications of involving identity theft but contain legitimate taxpayer’s name and/or Social Security number. The IRS has agreed to reverse its policy and provide identity theft victims with copies of the fraudulent tax return that has been filed under their name by criminals, so they can take the proper steps to secure their personal information.”
