It is that most wonderful time of year again. That’s right, time to prepare and file your 2012 Income Tax Return! As if this wasn’t bad enough, it is also a time that some will discover that they are a victim of identity theft. Here are the warning signs:
-Receiving a W-2 or 1099 from a company you have not been employed by nor had a financial relationship with
-Receiving a notice from the IRS indicating there are unclaimed wages or income associated with your SSN
-Being notified there has already been a return submitted for that tax year when attempting to file your taxes
-When the IRS will not accept your claim of a dependent because someone has already claimed that dependent or used the dependent’s SSN on a different return
If any of these things happen to you, consider filing IRS Form 14039 (Identity Theft Affidavit).
