Tax Time Identity Theft Tips

Protecting your identity is important no matter the time of the year, but with the level of sensitive information floating around during tax season; it is wise to take additional precautions. The deadline established by the IRS for filing your taxes is April 15th, so you have ample time to protect your personal information before filing. 

1. Subscribe to a credit monitoring service. This will let you know as soon as any unauthorized transactions happen, so that you can act quickly.

2. If you are filing online, invest in a firewall to secure your personal information.

3. Filing your taxes at home is a great way to save money. When you are ready to mail them off, never put them in your mailbox where someone can take them. You should always drop them off directly at the Post Office.

4. Do not carry your social security number around with you everywhere you go.
