Costa Mesa, CA (PRWEB) February 20, 2013
Ideal Tax Solution, LLC has discovered a joint effort between the Department of Justice and local U.S. Attorneys offices has resulted in 734 enforcement actions since the beginning of the year. These actions include complaints, indictments, information and arrests. This effort pushes the total number of identity theft investigations to more than 1,460 since the start of the federal 2012 fiscal year on October, 1, 2011.
During that same fiscal year, Ideal Tax Solution has learned over 2,400 other enforcement actions were initiated against identity thieves. The national effort coordinated by the Justice Department and other federal, state and local agencies, reflects a larger, comprehensive identity theft strategy which focuses on the prevention, detection and resolution of identity theft cases as soon as possible.
“As tax season begins this year, we want to be clear that there is a heavy price to pay for perpetrators of refund fraud and identity theft,” said IRS Acting Commissioner Steven T. Miller. “We have aggressively stepped up our efforts to pursue and prevent refund fraud and identity theft, and we will continue to intensely focus on this area. This is part of a much wider effort underway for the 2013 tax season to stop fraud.”
By better understanding the scope and depth of ongoing IRS actions and procedural initiatives, Ideal Tax Solution is better able to assist its clients in need of professional tax help. Identity theft can sometimes cause the circumstances that trigger an IRS investigation. It is not uncommon for taxpayers who find themselves suddenly classified as delinquent taxpayers by the IRS to have been victims of identity theft.
One common example of taxpayer victimization involves identity thieves filing fraudulent tax refund claims using another person’s stolen identifying information. Innocent taxpayers are victimized because they’re refunds are delayed. As part of their complete tax services approach, Ideal Tax Solution counsels taxpayers on the best ways to protect against identity theft, thereby significantly reducing their need for professional tax resolution help.
“We are strengthening our processing systems to watch for identity theft and detect refund fraud before it occurs,” Miller added. “And we continue to put more resources on helping people who are victims of identity theft and resolve these complex cases as quickly as possible.”
Ideal Tax Solution is available to provide comprehensive, professional tax help for any tax related issue.
