Identity Theft Issues

Tax related identify theft, as defined on the IRS website, is when someone uses your stolen personal information, including your Social Security number, to file a tax return claiming a fraudulent refund.

The IRS Taxpayer Guide to Identity Theft states that you should be on the alert for the following:

  • You get a letter from the IRS inquiring about a suspicious tax return that you did not file.
  • You can’t e-file your tax return because of a duplicate Social Security number.
  • You get a tax transcript in the mail that you did not request.
  • You get an IRS notice that an online account has been created in your name.
  • You get an IRS notice that your existing online account has been accessed or disabled when you took no action.
  • You get an IRS notice that you owe additional tax or refund offset, or that you have had collection actions taken against you for a year you did not file a tax return.
  • IRS records indicate you received wages or other income from an employer you didn’t work for.

If you have an Identity Theft Issue it can takes months to resolve, or in certain circumstances sometimes years.  Don’t hesitate to contact our offices for a free consultation today at 760-529-4926 or 617-535-3300.

I know how important reviews are because I rely on them just as much as you, so let me tell you about Ryan McFarland Law Offices. I was referred to Ryan by my neighbor when I described multiple tax issues I had with multiple state and federal agencies. Ryan gave me his full attention, listened to my speak, gave me detailed feedback on where my problems fit relative to the laws and demonstrated how he could bring me value and various solutions. He also educated me on my cases strengths and weaknesses and made recommendations all during our initial consultation. Based on what Ryan and I discussed during the consultation I was able to work to resolve the issue on my own, all the while Ryan rooted me on to success. For that he has earned my business whenever I or anyone I know needs an attorney. He put me first.

What else can I say, Ryan is awesome. He's helped me work through some challenging personal and business tax issues that required a ton of patience and diligence on his part and explained things every step of the way. Super helpful to have help from someone who understands the law and is able to make it comprehensible for someone like me.
