Protect Your Bubble, identity theft protection brand, has three consumers tips this tax season.

It’s that time of year again, last minute tax stress. Consumers undoubtedly have a lot on their minds, but ID Theft stress should not be one. Protect Your Bubble, identity theft protection brand, has three consumers tips this tax season.

Guard W-2 Forms – This form carries a lot of personal information and would be very valuable for an identity thief. Use caution when emailing, scanning and leaving this document leaving around. If keeping a photo copy of this document is necessary, be sure to keep it somewhere very secure.

Receipts Are Risky – Tax write-offs call for receipts. If plans call for uploading to the internet, but sure that the site is very secure. If holding onto the original receipt, it’s important to keep them somewhere safe and secure…and hidden. Not all receipts will have information that would make the consumers vulnerable, but it’s important to look at the receipts. Some, including hotel statements, can contain a name and address, which would give an identity thief a big head start.

1099 Forms Can Be 100% Risky – Many consumers will need to reference their 1099 forms. Just like the W-2 form, these documents can have sensitive information that can house compromising information. One of the risks here is that there’s potential to have multiple forms, which means more to monitor. It’s important to not throw these forms out and keep them stored somewhere safe and secure, whether in the home or online.
