Updated: Mar 27, 2020
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has launched its Identity Theft Central webpage to provide 24/7 access to online information regarding tax-related identity theft and data security protection.
Tax-related identity theft occurs when someone steals personal information to commit tax fraud. The Department of Homeland Security Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages taxpayers, tax professionals, and businesses to review the IRS news release and CISA’s Tip on Preventing and Responding to Identity Theft for more information.
