Guard Those W-2s And Avoid Fraud and Identity Theft

Since most tax documents contain your Social Security number, there is a high risk of becoming a victim of identity theft or fraud during this time of year. While even the most vigilant among us can still fall victim to such criminal behavior, it is a good idea that you remain on guard for such a thing.

Many criminals attempt a theft of tax documents simply by removing them from your mailbox. Regularly check your mail to prevent this from happening to you. If you do not have all your W-2s by January 31st, then contact your employer. After February 14th, contact the IRS. Once you receive the documents, store them securely in a safe or locked cabinet.

Criminals who get your Social Security number sometimes file a tax return with it so that they can claim your refund. In such an instance, you must contact the IRS immediately and advise them of the identity theft.
