Tips to Protect Your Personal Information
The IRS, the states and the tax industry urge you to be safe and remind you to take important steps to help protect your tax and financial information
and guard against identity theft. Treat your personal information like cash – don’t hand it out to just anyone.
Your Social Security number, credit card numbers, and bank and utility account numbers can be used to steal your money or open new accounts in your name. Every time you are asked for your personal information think about whether you can really trust the request. In an effort to steal your information, scammers will do everything they can to appear trustworthy.
Save your tax returns and records. Your federal and state tax forms are important financial documents you may need for many reasons, ranging from home
mortgages to college financial. Print out a copy and keep in a safe place. Make an electronic copy in a safe spot as well. These steps also can help you more easily prepare next year’s tax return. If
you store sensitive tax and financial records on your computer, use a file encryption program to add an additional layer of security should your computer be compromised.
